Allow passwordless access to a subfolder of a password protected directory

Filed under: Computer Tips,Knowledgebase — Suramya @ 2:22 PM

We have a directory on the server thats password protected and we needed to give access to a subdirectory of that folder to everyone (Without having them enter a password). Turns out it is possible to do so using .htaccess

Create a .htaccess file in the subfolder that you want to give full access to with the following content:

AuthType none
Satisfy any

Save and exit. This overrides the password protection of the parent folder and gives anonymous access to the folder.

Thanks to Vinit for the tip.
