    Using CPanel, Does anyone know how to password protect the entire website, 1 ID and 1 PW not individual folders or directories, the entire website?

    Thanks
    Kip,

    Thats possible. Click on Cpanel >> Password protect directories>> "/ (Current Folder) " to do that.
     
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...

    I did the same thing, but now I am trying to remove the password protection and I cant do it...

    When I untick "password protect this directory" and hit save, it does not change. The "password protect this directory" tick is still on.

    Im going crazy with this, for I need my site running now :eek:

    You may wish to contact your web hosting provider regarding this issue.

    If you are the owner of the server, you may wish to manually check your .htaccess files

    I am the owner of the server. Where do I find the .htaccess files?

    thanks!

    Generally in the directory you are password protecting, but it can be in a parent/grandparent/etc directory as well.

    Though, if I recall correctly, more recent builds of cPanel 11 no longer use .htaccess files and instead interact directly with vhosts in httpd.conf.
