Using cPanel to password protect directories




cPanel makes it easy to password protect directories using HTTP Authentication. Just follow the following 3 steps.

  1. Open cPanel and select "Password Protect Directories"
  2. Browse to the directory you would like to password protect by clicking on the folder icon to the left of the directory name
  3. Click on the directory name
  4. Tick the box "" and give the directory a name. The directory is now password protected, you just have to add users
  5. Scroll towards the bottom of the page and enter a username and password
  6. Click on "Add/modify authorized user" (you can add as many users as you like)

That's it, your directory is now password protected.
