If you plan to use .htaccess files, you will need to have a server configuration that permits putting authentication directives in these files. This is done with the AllowOverride directive, which specifies which directives, if any, may be put in per-directory configuration files.
Or, if you are just going to put the directives directly in your main server configuration file, you will of course need to have write permission to that file.
And you’ll need to know a little bit about the directory structure of your server, in order to know where some files are kept. This should not be terribly difficult, and I’ll try to make this clear when we come to that point.
