I'm trying to pw protect a root folder 'myFolder' and leave the other folders accessible to the public i.e. bobsFolder, suesFolder etc.

can someone show me a sample of how this would be done and I can fill in the blanks?

In the root folder, put a .htaccess file like this
authtype basic
authuserfile /usr/local/httpd/users
authname "My Database"
require valid-user
satisfy all

Open in new window


Then in each subfolder, put a .htaccess file like this:
satisfy any

Open in new window
