Folder Access

This may sound silly, but how do I change who accesses what folder in htdocs so people can access the folders I choose.

Error 500

If you get an error 500, look into the "error.log".

AuthUserFile C:/program files/xampp/security/downloads.htpasswd

You must use quotes:
Code: Select all
AuthUserFile "C:/program files/xampp/security/downloads.htpasswd"
