Good day,

We have a trial version of the Apache-Conf installed. I regret that I am an inexperienced user of Apache, and I have not yet been succesful in using the tool to provide authentication and authorization to selected directories on our Apache server.

Is there a tutorial available for 'laymen'. Can we purchase an hour of telephone support?

Unfortunately we have no the animated tutorial.

You need to create the .htpasswd (.htgroup if needed) file with your users and their passwords.
Select the directory in the project tree (in ApacheConf) and click the 'Lock (unlock) directory' label on the Tasks panel. Specify the path to that .htpasswd file and some other parameters.
Restart server.

Btw, to do this you can use our freeware program Htpasswd Generator.

And I strongly recommend for novices to read these articles:
