    When using the web protect on a directory using CPanel no files are populated to the directory I\'m protecting. No password file, and no .htaccess. I manually created these files and they worked fine, but nothing happened when using Web Protect. What am I missing?

    Thanks!

    What steps did you use? One of our users suffered the same problem until we gently pointed out that they needed to actually create users and save what they did.

    did either

    1. check protect folder box and save
    2. create user and save user

    or

    1. create user and save user
    2. check protect folder box and save

    in either case after saving, the protect folder check box get\'s unchecked - it doesn\'t stay checked

    After creating the .htaccess file manually in the directory to protect. I was able to add entries via the cpanel. The link to the password file must point to.../web/site/.htpasswds/foldername/passwd

    This is the default location web protect populates the password file.

    Hope this helps!
