Htaccess Authentication

Gary Stevens — Last Updated on August 20, 2021

Password protect one or more directories with Basic HTTP Authentication using .htaccess. A .htpasswd file will be used to store login details. Use the .htpassswd generator to create entries in the .htpasswd file.

⚠️ – We’ve take down this page for the time being as we’ve been having issues with bots maxing out our servers. For the time being please see our Htpasswd Generator.  Apologies on any inconvenience this may have caused our readers. Hoping to have the tools back up in action once we can stop these bots as well as switch to our new VPS. ⚠️


If you’re looking for additional information on htaccess please see our htaccess guide containing over 25 individual tutorials.
