Ask for a password when accessing a folder

[1] Create a new passwd file

htpasswd -c -m /some/path/passwd.file myUser

htpasswd -m /some/path/passwd.file myUser2

( at Uberspace the <passwd.file> has to be located below /var/www/virtual/<USER>/ )


AuthType Basic
AuthName "some Text"
AuthUserFile /some/path/passwd.file
#AuthGroupFile /www/passwords/group.file
Require User myUser

URL Rewrite for wiki

see [2] , [3] or [4]

my case: wiki stored unter folder wiki, using virtual folder wickie

# Wiki: convert request using /index.php?title=XYZ ->/XYZ
# only apply the following to wiki urls
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} .*(wickie|wiki).* [nocase]
RewriteCond %{THE_REQUEST} \?title=(.+)\ HTTP
RewriteRule ^.*$ http://www\.entorb\.net/wickie/%1? [R=301,L]

# Short URLs for Wiki
RewriteEngine On
# only apply the following to wiki urls
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} .*(wickie|wiki).* [nocase]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^(.+)$ /wiki/index.php?title=$1 [L,QSA]
# in LocalSettings.php
$wgUsePathInfo = true;
$wgScriptPath       = "/wiki"; # real path
$wgScriptExtension  = ".php";
$wgScript           = "$wgScriptPath/index$wgScriptExtension";
$wgArticlePath = "/wickie/$1"; # virtual path
