Subject: [users@httpd] Create user password and user group

Dear all
I'm a newbie to apache, i had install the apache 2.0.48 on winXP with sp1,
and i had also set the "documentroot", but now i want to create some
security for my web site.
1. How i can create user password or user group files?
2. the file .htaccess , what exactly does that do?
A reference link for this security topic will be helpful!
Thx alot


Take a look at
(.htaccess file explained) and (individual and user groups
passwords). Anyway i recommend you that take a look at Apache official docs,
located at ... there you will find a nice
intro to some Apache concepts and several how-to's.

On the other way think about implementing authorization through htppaswd
file and Directives instead using a .htaccess file per each protected
directory, take a look at

The official User-To-User support forum of the Apache HTTP Server Project.
