use htaccess/htpasswd for file protection (2 posts)

    is it possible to use htaccess / htpasswd for protection of files in the download folder? i know there is already an htaccess file in the filebase folder with "Order deny,allow Deny from all".

    but my idea reaches a little further - what i try to create is a simple protection of the files via htaccess an htpasswd (without using the login option for wordpress users). visitors could only download a file with username and password of the htpasswd file.

    any ideas?

    I would dearly love to be able to do this.

    Use .htpasswd files to protect the directory the files are in so there's a double security layer.

    Any idea how to please?
