Using the c panel doesn't work. I spent close to an hour on the GD chat and they could not help me at all. (Waste of my time). I don't want to have to mess with creating my own .htaccess file. Does anyone have a solution?
1. Go to file manager
2. click on the folder or file you want to password protect.
3. Select what user and name you want to use to access that file. Or create a new user/pwd
4. make sure the user is selected (check mark) from the list
5. click OK.
6. Go to test the web page and I get
