Hi all, Im trying to decide and figure out on how to password protect access to my web root directory (and everything under it). I was originally looking at the documentation for the Basic authentication type, however one of the drawbacks that it mentions is that it asks for the password upon an attempt to retreive any file. Now to me this sounds like I could potentially be asked for my login credentials multiple times for a page that loads images as the documentation suggests. Is this true or does the browser cache your credentials and send it back upon subsequent requests? I dont want to have to re-enter it a million times to just view one page. Thanks
