    Hi!

    I password protected my whole webpage using the older cPanel while testing something. I then took a long break from developing my site.

    However, now using the new password protect directories, I cannot UN-password protect it. Even though I uncheck the "Password Protect this folder" option, after i save and go back, it is checked once again, and I still cannot access it from my browser. Please advise.

    Thanks!

    Are you sure you are selecting the same directory name while un checking the password protection and saving it. Try clearing your browser cache and try again. You can manually clear the .htaccess file if there is no other option and remove the user files from ~/.htpasswds/public_html/path/to/protectedfolder.
