Subject Re: How to Password protect a directory
Date Wed, 27 Sep 2000 20:08:19 GMT
Someone mentioned copying the tomcat-apache.conf file to your /etc/apache 
directory (or wherever your httpd.conf file lives) and including it from 
there.  That way, it won't get overwritten.

Just remember to copy it over the next time you make an intended change.
