Hello everyone,
Thanking you in advance for your knowledge and help to me.

This is my DocumentRoot "/var/www/venus"

I have edited httpd.conf in this manner for .htaccess authentication

<Directory "/var/www/venus/">
AuthType Basic
AuthName "The Venus"
AuthUserFile /var/www/venus/cgi-bin/pwd/.htpasswd
AllowOverride None
order deny,allow
allow from all
<Files "index.html">
Allow from all
Satisfy any
require valid-user

Its working, I want to have user authentication on all pages/dirs except index.html.
Will some please help me as i do not want the username&password on index.html.
Any ways? Please.
