    Password Protect Directories

    I set permissions for /home/*/public_html/folder with Password Protect Directories in cpanel.
    After opening the site with the error encountered.
    "This webpage has a redirect loop"

    What do I do to solve this problem?

    Your .htaccess file may have the following line in it:

    “RewriteOptions inherit”

    You simply need to comment out it.

    NOTE: Make sure that you have secured a complete backup of .htaccess file in your local system prior to modifying it. Also, this is the .htaccess file located in the “public_html” folder and not in the folder/sub folder where your Blog or Gallery is installed.
