    Try doing it manually from shell...create a .htaccess in the required directory with valid entries in it..then use htpasswd to generate passwords.....I know it is not a solution...first do it and then try doing it from cpanel.

    Go on, have a guess
    You can upload a .htaccess file via FTP. You need to ask such questions of your web hosting provider since support is what you pay them for.
