Hi all,

Can you tell me how to put a password on a directory with the popup screen?

I did originally have one on my entire site but that was no good so i just deleted the htaccess file,it was after i relised that you had to put the htaccess file into the directory you wanted to protect.

Thanks!

to create a .htaccess file simply make a file in notepad, paste what you need and save it as .htaccess
when uploading it to your server it will come up as .htaccess.txt, rename this and remove the .txt and you will have a .htaccess file, providing your server supports them
