I have a number of password protected folder on my home server. They are all sub directories of a directory which everyone has access to. The server auto indexes each directory.
Eg: everyone can access http://blah.blah.com/~hamish/
but the sub directory http://blah.blah.com/~hamish/protected/
has a .htaccess file in it requiring a password.
At the moment, if you are in http://blah.blah.com/~hamish/,
you can't see the "protected" directory.
I would like to be able to see the folder link of the protected folder so I can click on it and then enter my password. At the moment, have to type in the full address (http://blah.blah.com/~hamish/protected/
), and then put my password in, before I can see inside that folder.
The question is, how can I show the password protected folder in the non-password protected directory?
I think it is something to do with AllowOverride, but I'm not quite sure how that works.
Thanks in advance
