Part of my web site is behind a user name, pass word protected directory
made with the hosts routine. EV-one in this case.
When I enter my name password to enter the directory and then leave to
go to other parts of the website, I do not have to enter my name
password when I come back.
When I go to other websites and come back to this protected directory, I
do not have to enter my name password.
The only time I have to enter my name, pass word is after I have closed
Is this normal.
Is there code I can add to close that particular path?
Is this a cookie issue and can I control that cookie?
I do remember when I set this up it ask 'ssl' or 'non-ssl' and both
were checked. I unchecked one and don't remember which and have not gone
to look since I started this message.
If you can help, I would appreciate it.
Re: Pass Word Protected Directories
If you get the "Enter userid/password" popup box, this is just part of
normal web server authentication. Your browser remembers your
userid/password for this site internally (no cookie or anything) and the
next time the site asks for your userid/password again, the browser
automatically resends it.
No cookies, etc. are involved. And of course, since the browser is
keeping it in memory, when you close the browser it is forgotten.
