How would I go about making a .htaccess file for my Apache Server 2.4, so that you would be able to access
https://www.development.stech.software/index.php?q=WILDCARD, but you couldn’t access
https://www.development.stech.software/index.php because they were password protected.
You can check out the website, it is a proxy server. I know the basics of a .htaccess file, but I am not sure how to make it so that it only allows query strings and password protects everything else.
I’ve been reading up on some other questions and found something like this:
SetEnvIf Request_URI ^/index.php?q=* noauth=1 AuthName "Please login." AuthType Basic AuthUserFile htdocs/.htpasswd Order Deny,Allow Satisfy any Deny from all Require valid-user Allow from env=noauth
SetEnvIf Request_URI ^/index.php?q=* auth=1 AuthName "Please login" AuthType Basic AuthUserFile "htdocs/.htpasswd" Order Allow,Deny Satisfy any Allow from all Require valid-user Deny from env=auth
It didn’t work, nor do I understand it, but I thought I should take a shot at it. Please let me know what I’m doing wrong or how should I go about doing what I need to do.
