Maybe I am not understanding this?

I created a password protected folder and placed it in my FTP

I then published a page within this folder

this is what i get when you click on the page I want protecting after entering the username and password

Is this right?

Sorry just realised you won't see anything when you click on the link!!! as it's protected!

Basically it takes you to a parent page? you know like when before you ever publish a site? It doesn't take you to the page I published?

I am trying to remember Marincky, but I believe the directory (folder) you create needs to be within the public_html directory but is password protected ....

So I think the page that you create that you want to protect within this directory, needs to be published to public_html/passwordprotectdirectory ..... and this would be the link that you would click and when clicking on the link you would be prompted for a password ....

I think this is correct ...
