PHP set password protection file like htaccess

Many times we need to set a password on single file like Adminer, PHPINFO etc… We don’t want to share a access to those files with any normal user. So, Basically, we set Password protection using htaccess or web config on those files. PHP provides the easiest way to set Password on a single file. let’s see using PHP set password protection file like htaccess.

Let’s open the PHP file then copy past below PHP code.

PHP set password protection file

$LoginSuccessful = false;

if (isset($_SERVER['PHP_AUTH_USER']) && isset($_SERVER['PHP_AUTH_PW'])){

    $Username = $_SERVER['PHP_AUTH_USER'];
    $Password = $_SERVER['PHP_AUTH_PW'];

    if ($Username == 'setusername' && $Password == 'setpa55word'){
        $LoginSuccessful = true;

if (!$LoginSuccessful){ 

    header('WWW-Authenticate: Basic realm="Secret page"');
    header('HTTP/1.0 401 Unauthorized');

    print "Login failed!\n";
