Problem when page requires authentication
How to set password protection for sub directory without affecting to other .htaccess rewrite rules
You will notice that the default .htaccess will not work if your page requires authentication.
Suppose you have set the password protection for admin or any other sub-directory and when you tyr to access the URL http://domain.com/admin then it shows the “401” error .
This problem is occurred due the root .htaccess ( which is under document root) file.
I have trying all sorts of htaccess rewrites in different places but the solution is very simple.
Add this line to the beginning of the .htaccess file in your root .htaccess means “/home/username/publi_html/.htaccess ” file.
ErrorDocument 401 “Unauthorized”
After that when you have access the URL http://domain.com/admin then it ask the login details.
