asked on

protecting a staging website with username and password iis 7

Hi,

I have a staging website and I don't want it visibile to everyone so want to protect it with a username and password.

I am running iis7.

Have disabled anonymous authentication but this just disables access completely.

I am trying to get it so the user is prompted with a username and password that I can set up somewhere.

How do i do this?

Have you tried enabling "Basic Authentication"? This should be what you are after.
