    How do I password protect a directory (page)

    I want to have a password for some sections of my site.
    this is on apache.
    I'd like to be able to have some one enter a password once, then browse a section of the site.

    not separate passwords for diffferent people, just 1 password to get in.

    I want to keep some business information private from the public

    thanks!

    Just use the.htaccess file - here's a page I found with a comprehensive tutorial on it. I just searched htaccess on google.

    or actually, more specifically:

    look over at apache.org and search for the help file on .htaccess if you want a secure way of password protecting
