How can i protect directories on teh apache web server,, other than using .htaccess file. I want a seperate login to protect directories, as i have 5000 pages in that directory.

.htaccess works. Why not use it? You can always make a <Directory /></Directory> addition to httpd.conf and use the same Auth directives as you would in the .htaccess file. Other than that, there is no real way to truly protect a directory with apache.
