How do I password-protect a directory?


You can restrict access to a directory in your website by password-protecting it. The steps are as follows:


Plesk 8.x or older


1)Log into your Windows hosting control panel at http://admin.yourdomain.ca.

2)Click directly on the domain name at the bottom of the page.

3)Click on the "Web Directories" icon or the "Directories" icon under the "Hosting" section.

4)Click on the "Add New Directory" icon and enter a new directory name. This will be the new password-protected directory. If the target directory already exists, this step can be skipped.

5)Click directly on the target directory to navigate inside.

6)Click on the "Protection" tab and then on the "Protect" icon to enable password protection on the target directory.

7)Add user access to this directory accordingly.

8)Once user access is set up, the URL http://www.yourdomain.ca/targetdirectory would then be password-protected.



Plesk 9.x


1)Log into your Windows hosting control panel at http://admin.yourdomain.ca.

2)Click on the "Domain" icon and then click on the domain name.

3)Click on the "Password Protected Directories" icon under the "Files" section.

4)Click on the "Add Protected Directory" icon and enter a directory name. This will be the new password-protected directory. You should make sure the directory has already been created via FTP before performing this step.

5)Click directly on the target directory to navigate inside.

6)Click on the "Add New Users" icon.

7)Add user access to this directory accordingly.

8)Once user access is set up, the URL http://www.yourdomain.ca/targetdirectory would then be password-protected.



Plesk 10.x


1)Log into your Windows hosting control panel at http://admin.yourdomain.ca.

2)Select the desired domain from the "Subscription" drop down box at the top right corner (only if you have multiple domains).

3)Click on the "Websites & Domains" tab.

4)Click on the "Show Advanced Operations" link.

5)Click on the "Password-protected Directories" icon.

7)Click on the "Add Protected Directory" icon and enter a directory name. This will be the new password-protected directory. You should make sure the directory has already been created via FTP before performing this step.

8)Click directly on the target directory to navigate inside.

9)Click on the "Add New User" icon.

10)Add user access to this directory accordingly.

11)Once user access is set up, the URL http://www.yourdomain.ca/targetdirectory would then be password-protected.



Note

If you have forgotten the login information to your Windows hosting control panel, please refer to KB-3000 for more instructions on how to retrieve it.
