You could use an htaccess file. Maybe not the best choice but it's easy. It'd go a li'l somethin' like this.  And a one, and a two, and a one, two, three, four...

change to the dir you want to password protect

cat > .htaccess << "EOF"
AuthUserFile /etc/httpd-users
AuthGroupFile /etc/htttpd-groups
AuthName "Private Directory"
AuthType Basic
require valid-user
Options +Indexes
EOF

Now do the following as root:

(to create empty files)
touch /etc/httpd-users
touch /etc/httpd-groups

(to add users)
htpasswd -b /etc/httpd-users [username] [password]   ...(rinse and repeat)

I think that using the MySQL authentication is even simpler than that. Open your config.inc.php file and go to the section that defines your MySQL user id and password and change it to this:

$cfg['Servers'][$i]['auth_type']     = 'http';    // Authentication method (config, http or cookie based)?
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['user']          = '';      // MySQL user
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['password']      = '';          // MySQL password (only needed
                                                    // with 'config' auth_type)

You are changing the authentication method from config to http. This will automatically prompt you for your MySQL user ID and password.
