    re: Can i set password for directories

    You can set Apache Password Protection to your directories. By this you can keep your file safe from unauthorized users and search engines.To create apache password protected directories you need Password file and Directory name which you would like to password protect.Make sure Apache is configured to use .htaccess file.You have to have Allow Override AuthConfig directive in httpd.conf file in order for these directives to have any effect. Look for Document Root Directory entry, then set the password for your file.And it will be done.
