I need to create an authentication exception for specific folders on my Apache server.
We have a blanket password protection across our whole domain, but this prevents Wordpress from uploading files and creating folders with it's Flash uploaders. Also any upload methods from plugins are failing too with
HTTP Error 401.
Is there any way to make an exception for
/wp-content folders specifically?
That way, I can add the exception to any subdomains we make that use wordpress.
I've seen many examples of doing this with IPs using
Allow From, but not with folder names...
