Password protected directory is not working for subdomain.


It is not possible to manage password protected directories for subdomains in Plesk.


As a workaround you can configure .htaccess file in your subdomain httpdocs directory to protect the subdomain.

.htaccess should be like below:

AuthType Basic
AuthName "Password Required"
AuthUserFile /www/passwords/password.file
Require valid-user
