Password protecting directories

July 07, 2011

LiveWhale allows you to password directories easily.

If you wish to create a new directory with password protection, see “Creating a new directory”.

To password protect an existing directory, follow these steps:

From the LiveWhale interface, click the “Pages” tab. (If the Pages tab does not appear, the administrator has not assigned page editing permissions to you.)

Click the “File Browser” submenu. You will see a file system browser allowing you to navigate to the directory you wish to password protect.

Once in the directory, click the “Password protect this directory” link.

On the directory password page, any existing password protection in place is listed. To add an additional user/password login, click “Add new user” and fill in the username and password.

Once all the usernames and passwords have been configured, click the save button.
