Default Protecting Directories

You can protect directories within your site from browsers by using a password to protect them. This allows you to restrict material to only authorized users or store sensitive material online. This has the same appearance and effect as the password protection on CPanel.

To password protect a directory:

Click on the Password protect directories button on the home page.

Navigate to the directory that you want to protect. Select a folder by clicking on the folder name link, or open a folder by clicking on the folder icon.

Click on the tick box next to the icon.

Enter the name that you want to appear in the Protected Resource Name field. This is optional and purely for the user's benefit.

Click on the Save button. Generally, you now need to add at least one authorized user to enable access to the directory. Refer to Adding an authorized user for more information.

Adding Authorised Users

You can control who can access protected directories by adding authorized users. Generally, at least one authorized user needs to be added, otherwise no-one will not be able to view the directory.

To add or modify an authorized user:

Click on the Password protect directories button on the home page.

Navigate to the required directory. Select a folder by clicking on the folder name link. Open a folder by clicking on the folder icon.

Enter the user's name in the Username field, and their password in the Password field.

Click on the Add New User button.

Navigate to the required directory. Select a folder by clicking on the folder name link. Open a folder by clicking on the folder icon.

Removing Password Protected Directories

Remove password protection on a directory when you no longer want other users to have access to that directory. You do not need to remove user authorization for the directory when removing password protection, as all the users will be automatically deleted when you remove the protection.

To remove password protection from a directory:

Click on the Password protect directories button on the home page.

Navigate to the protected directory. Select a folder by clicking on the folder name link. Open a folder by clicking on the folder icon.

Untick the tick box next to the icon.

Click on the Save button.
