I am new to cpanel, I switched over from ENSIM...
I have protected /home/myusername/public_html directory using the Password Protect Directory utility in Cpanel.
Before I did that, I created a user and password in the Password Protect Utility...
So what I did was:
1. Create User Name and Password inside the Password Protect Directory utility in Cpanel.
2. I then chose the directory I wanted to protect which is the public_html directory. The reason I want to do this is that we are not ready to go live yet, so we basically don't want visitors viewing the site, yet...
3. After I choose the directory I want to protect which is /public_html in Password Protect Directory utility inside Cpanel - I then SAVE
4. I then open up another browser (FireFox and IE), and I go to the site (by typing www.mysite.com), I am prompted to enter my user name and password. I put in what I stated in bullet 1 above.
But it doesn't let me in. What am I doing wrong?
I have read - and seen the demo to do this and I am confident I am doing everything right.
Maybe I am not suppose to PW protect the /public_html directory???
Any ideas from anybody who has experienced this before?
Thank you in advance...
