I am facing with the problem of server side authentication. Is there any instructions how to to that. I have installed 1.9.0 version and I am using cPanel. Is it possible to do using .htaccess file?

Hello,

I'm not very familiar with Cpanel but see if these articles assist:

Basically to answer your question - yes you can use .htaccess files. You will also require a htpasswd file to be generated to store the usernames and passwords.
