Password Protection

DevShop allows you to password protect your sites with an "HTTP Password".
This prevents anyone (including search engines) from accessing any page unless they know the password.

Adding a Password to an Environment

To add a HTTP Password to an environment:
  1. 1.
    Visit the Project Dashboard.
  2. 2.
    Click an environment's Environment Settings icon
    Push this button to open Environment Settings.
  3. 3.
    Click Environment Settings.
  4. 4.
    Scroll toward the bottom of the form.
  5. 5.
    Look for the section HTTP Basic Authentication.
  6. 6.
    Enter a username and password, and a message if you wish.
  7. 7.
    Click "Save".
  8. 8.
    Wait for the environment to complete verification.
  9. 9.
    Visit the site and confirm that the browser asks you for a username and password.

Removing a Password from an Environment

To remove the password, simply empty the "username" and "password" fields from the environment settings form.
