Chapter 20 - Password Protect Directory
NOTE: You cannot use this feature with Front Page Extensions
The Password Protect Directory feature in your Control Panel allows you to restrict access to a particular directory within your account and allowing access by assigning usernames and passwords to individuals that you choose to allow such access.
When you click on this option you will be asked to select the directory that you want to protect, simply click the text link of the directory name and you will be taken to the screen where you complete the specifics for user information.
The first thing that you must do is enter a unique name for this protection in the upper section of the screen. The name must be a single word or phase with no spaces. Once you've entered a name, click the save button.
Now you are ready to add users that can have access to the specific directory. To add a new user, simply input the username and password and click save. You will be carried to a screen that will confirm the new user and you can click the link in the left menu to go back and add more users. Be sure to hit refresh when you return to the screen to enter more users.
To change a password for a user, simply input the username and the new password for the user and click save. You will be carried to a screen that will confirm the new user and you can click the link in the left menu to go back and add more users.
NOTE: Usernames and passwords MUST be from 6 to 8 characters long. Any less than 6 or greater than 8 will cause your protected directory cease to function and you will receive an error when trying to enter the directory.
To delete a user, select the user from the list and click the Delete button at the bottom of the screen.
