I protect the
wp-login.php file via my
<Files wp-login.php> AuthName "Admin-Bereich" AuthType Basic AuthUserFile /*path*/htdocs/.htpasswd require valid-user </Files>
Now when I call my website with
/wp-admin/, it asks for username and password which I specified in the
.htpasswd file. After I have entered these correctly, I get to the WordPress login. There I enter my WordPress credentials, i.e. username and password. And even though I enter everything correctly here as well, after logging in I am asked AGAIN for the username and password which I specified in the
.htpasswd file. Why? Only after that I am in the WordPress backend and can work normally.
But normally it should be enough that I enter them once when calling the
/wp-admin/ page, then the WordPress login and done? But I have to enter the
.htaccess credentials twice.
What can be the reason for this?
I only use this one
.htaccess file which is in the
htdocs folder. There is NO other
.htaccess in the
