IIS? Read the manual ;-)

 

Apache? Use .htaccess/htpasswd files

Password protection for http-servers is highly implementation-dependant. You will have to read the manual of your webserver program to find out how to do it.

 

Most of us tend to use Apache so you will often hear something about .htaccess files - the apache method of doing this.

 

IIS will use some clicker-di-click-multiple-funny-dialogboxes approach (I dunno, never used IIS) and omni-httpd is something I never touched :-)

 

My advice: start using apache ;-)

HAHA.... too bad no manual comes with IIS... just an HTML help file that isn't very helpful at all

Geez, really? I thought such a giant company as M$ would be able to produce a 1000+ pages manual. ;-)

 

Result: Use apache :-))
