“.htaccess” with password: protecting the “.htpasswd” folder and auto-login

The fastest and easiest way to do basic authentication on the web is with .htaccess/.htpasswd. Let me remind you how to do this:

1. Create a file on the server:

within it:

AuthType Basic
AuthName "Your authorization required message."
AuthUserFile /home/user/vasya/public_html/.htpasswd
require valid-user
php_value display_errors 1

In AuthUserFile, you need to set the absolute path to the login-password file. To find out the path, we put the script in the folder:


echo dirname(__FILE__) . '/.htpasswd';

Open it and find out the way.

2. Create file

vasya:<password in MD5>

Note that a normal MD5 generator will not work, apache has its own MD5 hash structure. Google “md5 .htaccess” giner

3. Make a link for auto-entry
