1 comment :

Though it is a simple authentication, but we can somehow restrict unauthorized access.


Sounds good??? It should...

Catch the following steps to get this done.

Pre-Requisites:

1. Apache Webserver
2. htpasswd (password generator)

Steps:

1. Create a username/password file using htpasswd

# htpasswd -c password_filename user_name
New password:******
Re-type new password:******



2. Create a ".htaccess" in your www/root folder with the following contents

AuthType Basic
AuthName "Apache Admin Guide Authors"
AuthUserFile "/opt/lampp/bin/password_filename"
Require user user_name



3. Now try accessing to your webpage.

Ex: http://localhost/pagename.html
