Hi

I have authentication on a virtual host in apache:
<Directory "/var/www/html/john">
AuthType Basic
AuthName "Restricted Files"
AuthUserFile /etc/httpd/conf/access
Require user John
</Directory>

inside this virtualhost is a folder called Files

How can I exclude the authentication from the Files directory?

I want unrestricted access to /Files, but the authentication must apply to everything else
