.htaccess Experts How do you make this log in box?

5 replies

I went to a site today that was password protected. How do you add the extra password window? I thought there could only be two, they have 3 could you have 4, 5 or more?

    It normally just username and password.
    Google: "htaccess login box" and read the found pages.
    You need a .htaccess file in the folder and a .htpasswd file outside the folder.

  • I don't belive that is a htaccess/htpassword generated box.
    It looks like a windows generated box.

    htaccess only works on *nix servers so if it is a windows server then you have to setup password protection differently and I think that is where that box comes from.

Turned out google voice is a different URL. I really don't know what this was. It looks just like the sign in boxes I have on my membership sites that are related to the .htaccess files. I just thought it would be cool to be able to create the 3 text boxes instead of two.
