how do I create a password on directories and files?
I want to create a password on some of the files on my server. I am running Fedora Core server. Can anyone help me in how to create a password on files or the whole directories? I hope it is not too complicated. I tried following the instructions from these sites. But nothing is happening on my Fedora Core HTTP web server. I don't get a username and password prompt.
I've tried doing this and does not work. what am I doing wrong? Do I need to make changes into my httpd.conf file. I googled this and some instructions tell me to change the directive AllowOverride none to AllowOverride AuthConfig.
I am not sure where to make the changes in the httpd.conf file.
thanks in advance :)
