HTTP Authentication

Use an external authentication source in WordPress.

  1. Login as an existing user, such as admin.
  2. Upload the http-authentication folder to your plugins folder, usually wp-content/plugins. (Or simply via the built-in installer.)
  3. Activate the plugin on the Plugins screen.
  4. Add one or more users to WordPress, specifying the external username for the "Username" field. Also be sure to set the role for each user.
  5. Logout.
  6. Protect wp-login.php and wp-admin using your external authentication (using, for example, .htaccess files).
  7. Try logging in as one of the users added in step 4.
