    I think you may be referring to the directive AllowOverride with the directive type of AuthConfig.

    If so you would do something like:

    <Directory "/usr/local/someWebSite/docs/membersOnly">
    AllowOverride AuthConfig
    Options None

    you need to log in to your server. if its not at your desk then ssh or telnet.

    then you use a text editor to make the .htaccess file

    and /usr/bin/htpasswd to create a .htpasswd file.

    is that what you mean?
