Problem when page requires authentication


How to set  password protection for sub directory  without affecting to other .htaccessrewrite rules

Ans :

You will notice that the default .htaccess will not work if your page requires authentication.

Suppose you have set the password protection for admin or any other sub-directory  and when you tyr to  access the URL then it shows the “401 error .

This problem is  occurred due the root .htaccess ( which is under document root) file.

I have trying all sorts of htaccess rewrites in different places but the solution is very simple.

Add this line to the beginning of the .htaccess file in your root .htaccess means “/home/username/publi_html/.htaccess ” file.

ErrorDocument 401 “Unauthorized”

After that when you have access the URL then it ask the login details.
