Password protected directory

We work with test and staging server. But we don't want others to access the website. We can stop access for unauthorized users by using passwd feature. First, we create a user/password pair with the passwd command.

htpasswd -c /home/pwww/.htpasswd jerry


Then we create a .htaccess file on the same level where our directory is located that we want to be protected. We placed the below code block in the file:

AuthUserFile /home/pwww/.htpasswd
AuthGroupFile /dev/null
AuthName EnterPassword
AuthType Basic
require user jerry


Then try to reload your directory access using browser. You will get a window asking for authentication.
