Can't login to your password protected directory?

Beautiful Customized Web Design Optimized for Performance

Issue: I password protected my sub directory of my site but when I try executing a page in that directory with my new user name I added to the directory it won’t let me in.

Reason: When executing the script asp/.NET or Cold Fusion the script looks for the global.asa, web.config, or application.cfm file in the root of the site and because the user you logged in as only has access to the subdirectory you will not be able to access the page.

Resolution: Create an application starting point on the subdirectory. This will force asp/.NET or CF to look in this same dir for the files.

Resolution2: In file permissions, add the user/s to the folder/s being called from within the initial passworded protected directory. For example, adding permissions to the images directory.
