How do I change the password I have used to protect my webpage?

  • Open a Terminal session ( How do I connect to )
  • Change directory (use the command cd directoryname substituting the name of your folder) until you are in the directory you have password protected
  • Type in htpasswd -c.htpasswd username and then enter, and confirm the new password
