Hi all,

Can I use Apache built-in mechanism turning a WordPress website as a private site.

What I expect to achieve are as follows:-
1. Only authorized users can login the site with user ID and password to visit the site, including all pages. This notice is displayed on the HOME page.

2. New users can make request with the expected user ID and I'll email them the password if approved. This notice is also displayed on the HOME page with a click for making request.

If possible please advise how to make it on Apache?

Thanks

Regards

For that you don't need apache. it can be done in wordpress like https://hostingwiki.org/how-to-make-wordpress-site-private/

If you still have a question please ask again.

Hi James,

Thanks for your advice.

I have tried it. It only password-protects the Home page, not the complete website.

The upper header of the Home page still can be seen. Clicking the menu tags on the herder I can still read other pages without login

Regards

You still can use auth basic https://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/mod/mod_auth_basic.html

However with that only you can add users to it.
