Normally I would put this into my httpd.conf file such as
AuthName "Mandriva FTP Downloads"
if you do not have access to the httpd.conf file that as always it can be put into the .htaccess file using the same info as above.
remove the <limit GET POST></limit>
to create the .htpasswd file, from the command line type in
htpasswd -c /path/to/your/.htpasswd username
Note: the -c
is to create a new .htaccess file
is the name of the user you wish to add
if you already have a .htpasswd file and want to add more users to it use the following
htpasswd /path/to/your/existing/.htpasswd username
or if you are using windows you can use the form found here
copy the information and save it as .htpasswd
[b]Note/b] your file MUST have the peroid in front of the htpasswd
