AuthUserFile /path/to/htpasswd/file/.htpasswd
AuthGroupFile /dev/null
AuthName "Name of Area"
AuthType Basic
require valid-user
  • /path/to/htpasswd/file/ has to be a valid path to your .htpasswd file. Use a password encryption program to create your passwords. Paste the lines into your .htpasswd file and save the file. You will have one line for every username that requires access.
  • Change "Name of Area" to the name of the site section being protected.
