This article provides you with information on how to setup secure directories via your Plesk control panel.
If you want to limit public access to specific areas of your website, you can secure them with a password using the “Protected Directories” feature.
Anyone accessing such a directory or any directories and files inside it will be presented with a challenge, and will need to provide a username and password to view the protected content.
Setup Secure Directories
Step 2 - Go to Websites & Domains > Password-Protected Directories
Step 3 - Click Add Protected Directory
Step 4 - Add details for protected directory
- Type in the path to the directory you want to protect (relative to the domain’s document root directory) and, optionally, a title that will be displayed to visitors.
- Click OK.
Step 5- Click Add User
Step 6- Add user Access details
- Click OK
- Once completed you will use this login details to access the secure directory created.
