Enter a User name and Password in the fields provided.

Overwrite: will overwrite an existing user with the username and password.
MD5 password: generate an md5 password that's compatible with Apache.

Click the Add User button. The user name and password will now have to be entered to access the directory currently being viewed.
Existing user names and passwords can be deleted by selecting the desired user name from the drop-down menu and clicking the Remove"button or by clicking the Remove All button.

Once a username and password has be created, the url of the directory cannot be viewable from a browser without correctly providing the designated username and password. (EG. if you protected the directory 'foo', the url cannot be accessed without a username and password)
