I want to use htaccess/htpasswd on only one directory and any sub-directories inside that one and on.

html
html/authpages/(bunch of additional directories)

I want to allow anyone to reach html but I only want to allow authenticated https connections into the authpages directory and all sub-directories.

I have been searching the net for the solution but so far, I can only put the htaccess file at the root of the web site and protect the entire site whereas I want to protect only certain subdirectories so thought I would need an htaccess file in which ever subdirs I would want to protect?
