You can use this option to place a password on one of your site's directories. Only users that you specify will be able to access this directory.
Here are the steps:

  1. To access the Directory Access Menu, click on the words "Password Protect Directories" on the main screen of your cPanel interface
  2. Click on the name of the directory that you wish to protect. You can navigate to a directory by clicking on the icon next to it
  3. When the new screen appears, click on the box next to the icon to require a password to access the directory
  4. Type the name that you wish to appear in the login box for the directory in the blank field next to "Protected Resource Name:"
  5. Place the name of the user you wish to be able to access the directory in the blank field next to "Username:"
  6. Place the password for that user in the blank field next to "Password:" and click on "Add/Modify" authorized user
  7. Repeat steps 5 and 6 as necessary to add more users

Troubleshooting: To change a user's password, click on their name, type a new password into the "Password"  field, and click on "Change Password."
