Posted by Roy Petersen on Feb-15-2007 12:16 PM

You can control who can access protected directories by adding authorized users. Generally, at least one authorized user needs to be added, otherwise no-one will not be able to view the directory.

To add or modify an authorized user:

  1. Click on the Password protect directories button on the home page.

  2. Navigate to the required directory. Select a folder by clicking on the folder name link. Open a folder by clicking on the folder icon.

  3. Enter the user's name in the Username field, and their password in the Password field.

  4. Click on the Add New User button.
