I am creating a website for a friend of mine. She is a photographer and wants to offer password protection for her client's proofing pages. I intended to use password protected directories, but it looks like I can't offer her a login to add the directories herself?

Is there a way to allow her access to setup her own protected directories? I don't want to deal with the maintenance of adding new dir. every week as she adds clients. I know she can add a new directory via ftp, but there's not an option for adding password prot. to those, right?

I'd appreciate any help/ideas. I'm very comfortable with HTML, but I'm fairly new to the server side of things.

Thanks!

I'm not sure I understand. She does have cPanel access right? She should be able to make use of the cPanel File Manager and create directories, and then jump over to the Password Protection section of cPanel and lock it down easy enough.

Or is this not the case?
