I have a simple website that I tend to use to host small files I may need later on. Attached is index.php, which is a little password protection script I found via Google. It does the trick, but has its annoyances.
I would like to be able to go to www.mydomain.com/files , type in a password, then have the files listed something like this directory does: http://devbuilds.kaspersky-labs.com/devbuilds/RescueDisk/
Or even an explorer-like display, but I don't care to get into huge plugins or services. I've heard that ".htaccess" can help me do this, but I'm not quite sure what to do with that.
My provider is GoDaddy with their Linux server package.
Thanks for any help!
