The best way is to use a .htaccess file in the mythweb directory and let
Apache do the access handling. From my setup:
Create a file called ".htaccess" in the mythweb directory. Mine contains:
You may already have a .htaccess file for PHP variables -- just tack those
lines on the end. Then all you need is an htpasswd file, and google should
be able to look up how to do that. It just contains name:password pairs
with the passwords encrypted.
