Hi I am trying to set up password protected web pages with htaccess on dreamhost.com. While the panel in dreamhost allows one to set up password protection rather quickly. Once I uploaded updates to the directory, the protection is gone. How should I deal with that?

It sounds like you are overwriting the htaccess and possibly .htpasswrd files during the upload, it would be best to delete any local copies of these files before uploading.

Thanks. I downloaded these files now just in case they are overwritten during updating. –  boobami Mar 16 '12 at 18:10
