How do I password protect my forum and calender sites?
Category: Website Design
I want part of my web site to require an id/password to access the content. I would like a single sign on to multiple apps like a calendar, forum, etc. How is that accomplished?
You can password protect the directory in your cPanel that you install the forum or calender on. First, you can make a subdomain for each forum, calender etc. Please see the following links on how to do this.
