    I want to password-protect a directory with .htaccess. How can I do that?

    First, you have to create a file called .htaccess in the directory you want to password-protect:

    AuthType Basic
    AuthName "Members Only"
    AuthUserFile /path/to/your/.htpasswd
    <limit GET PUT POST>
    require valid-user
    Then create the file /path/to/your/.htpasswd which contains the users that are allowed to login and their passwords. You can use the htpasswd command for it:

    htpasswd /path/to/your/.htpasswd user1
    htpasswd /path/to/your/.htpasswd user2
    Obviously you have to adjust /path/to/your/.htpasswd :D
