Password protected folder bringing up 404 page (5 posts)

    I password protected a folder. It comes up 404. The issue is not with my hosts server. No 404 errors show in log.
    We tested using my other (non WP) domain on my account, works fine.

    I thought the 404 was caused by a caching plugin. Cleared cache, deactivated & deleted it. Deactivated all other plugins one by one and the 404 remains.

    I don't remember how I set up the 404. The password protected folder has an index page& robots.txt to prevent indexing and archiving.

    I am not sure why I am getting the 404 instead of the password prompt.

    This is a StudioPress theme.

    WordPress is looking for a page, called golden. It cannot find that page, hence the 404 page.

    So, there is no way to have a password protected folder on a url that has WordPress?

    There is an index page and a password box should pop up.

    Not sure tbh. But, WordPress has a media section with uploads ...?
