Password Protection

Can somebody walk me through the process of created a few password protected pages in my site?

Thanks

One of the easiest ways to do this does not involve FW at all.

Most ISPs provide a Control Panel of some sort (Cpanel is a v popular one)

There is a section under security that is called Password Protect Directories.

You can chose to make a folder protected

Password Protect Directories

This option will allow you to require a username and password to access a folder or folders from the web. This can be very useful when you need to limit access to a certain part of your site.

So by creating a subfolder in your FW doc that will contain your protected pages you then use your Cpanel to set up your username/password combinations for that subfolder.

Sorry to jump on this thread, but would each of these folders have to
have an index.html page or can they just be named as anything?

Thanks

No, the folders do not have to have an index page.

Only do that if you want a URL like; www.mydomain.com/securefolder/

Otherwise the URL will be www.mydomain.com/securefolder/mypage.html
