In the document root of my web server (Apache 2.2.15 on CentOS 6.0) I have an /index.php script, which I'd like to be password protected and then few helper scripts (/helper1.php, /helper2.php, ...) which actually shouldn't be password-protected - because they are sometimes used directly (for example "hotlinked" from some Excel spreadsheets).
At the moment I have every script password-protected:
<Location /> AuthType basic AuthName "My Protected Area" Require valid-user AuthBasicProvider ldap AuthzLDAPAuthoritative Off AuthLDAPURL "ldap://ldap-server.XXX.com/OU=Users,DC=XXX,DC=com?sAMAccountName?sub?(objectClass=user)" AuthLDAPBindDN afarber@XXX.com AuthLDAPBindPassword XXXXXX </Location>
Can anyone please suggest me a way, how to keep /index.php password-protected, but at the same time do not require entering a password when using /helper1.php, etc.?
Thank you! Alex
