Hello ded9,
According to your link, does a folder have to be named 'secure'? Because a folder I want to set accessible comes with a program and I don't want to rename it. I think I have to do something with httpd.conf. Am I right?
Or setting the folder name to 'secure' is the only way to do?
Thank you very much, anyway ^_^

Secure might be the best way. But before that try httpd.conf

That's the problem.
I don't know what to do with httpd.conf.
I added <VirtualHost *:443> block and set alias of the directory within the block, didn't work.
What else should I try?
Any suggestion?

Thank you very much in advance.
