Difference: PrivateWebpages (1 vs. 2)

Line: 1 to 1
Here's how to "privatize" nevis webpages:

In your WWW directory (or better a subdirectory made for that purpose so that your main directory remains open) put a file .htaccess with contents:

AuthType Basic 
AuthName <account name>  (for example alexweb) 
AuthUserFile <your home dir>/.htpasswd 
AuthType Basic 
<Limit GET> 
require valid-user 
 You need to generate the .htpasswd file using htpasswd, e.g. in your home dir do:
htpasswd -c .htpasswd alexweb
htpasswd .htpasswd alexweb
  Note that you can have multiple "accounts", each with their own password. Useful if some things are to be shared with some people and others with others...
