    I used cpanel's web protect module to .htaccess password protect a site's public_html root directory and it works fine.. going to site.com will prompt me for username/password

    but now i want to edit and/or remove the .htaccess so i go back into cpanel's web protect module but no matter how i try to click the root link / , the options to change/add username/password for public_html/ or remove the .htaccess aren't available anymore ?

    Click on another directory, in the url it will show that directory, something like /otherdir - remove otherdir so the it just has the / in it - should work :)
