I have my index.php script shown below.  I have set it up so that I can call a file into the webpage wrapper based on a passed variable name.  However, I am having a problem.  Let's say I want to view the photos.php page in the wrapper.  I would have the URL http://www.example.c...x.php?id=photos (I will refer to this as URL1)  and this works fine.  If I wanted to view just the photos page without the wrapper my URL would be http://www.example.com/photos.php (we'll call this URL2) and this works fine.  However, now with regard to htaccess password protection of the photos.php file.. If I use the following code shown below, I get the user/pass popup box with URL2 but NOT URL1.  How do I get htaccess to protect the file in the case of URL1?


$id = $_GET['id'];

if ($id == "")

	include 'header.php';
	include 'frontpage.php';
	include 'footer.php';

			if (file_exists("$id.php")) {
					include 'header.php';
					include "$id.php";
					include 'footer.php';

				} else {

					include 'header.php';
					include 'error.php';
					include 'footer.php';


<FilesMatch "(photos).php$">
AuthName "Restricted Area" 
AuthType Basic 
AuthUserFile /example/.htpasswd 
AuthGroupFile /dev/null 
require valid-user
