We have many development websites which we want to keep hidden from the public.
Is there a way to do this (through a means other than obfuscation) that we can do this without having to set a server password (Apache server).
The problem we have is many files will sometimes need to look at another file on itself, through external means (because it's a configurable thing). If the site has a password, then it gets a 401 Unauthorized error when it tries that.
Any ideas or insights?
