Admin protected folder RRS feed

    I have a folder on my website that is only for my administrative purpose, is there some easy way to password protect him?

    I saw a few web.config solutions but I did not understand them. 

    Since I have my own server currently I am using IIS Basic authorization but I do not believe that is a good solution

    Thank for any suggestions

    If you have folder that is access by website then you can secure it with Auth/Auth scheme which you are using in your web application, If folder is not using by web application then you can store it some where else outside of web application that is not accessible by any website user.

    Website application security and windows folder security are two different subject, there are several application available to secure your windows folder.
