I’m trying to create a private directory on my website.

Using the following in an .htacess:

AuthType Basic
"restricted area"
AuthUserFile /home/mywebsite/public_html/magmi/.htpasswd
require valid-user

And the following for the .htpasswd:


I tried storing the files in my root directory and the magmi directory. When storing them at the root level a user authentication is required for every page on website. When storing them in magmi directory, that directory completely disappears. Am I doing something wrong or are there additional server settings that need to be changed. Thanks in advance for the help!
