How to Password Protect a Directory in cPanel

Sometimes it is userful to hide files within a directory (folder) and only give access to those files to people who have the proper password.

For example, you may want to only allow authorized people to view or download certain files. Or you may have setup a development version of a website that is not ready for the public, so you password protect it so only the developers can see it.

cPanel has implemented a simply way to password protect directories, that works independently from any scripts or software you might have installed.

How to use Apache SpamAssassin in cPanel

SpamAssassin will analyze your incoming email, and give it a score indicating how spammy the email might be. It looks at a variety of factors and tries to estimate the likelihood that an email is spam or not. Many email clients then use this score to determine how to display the email to you. For example, emails with a high spam score may go directly into the spam folder or be deleted.
