Hi everyone, I was wondering if there is a way to send a link trough email but the page where the link is directed to is accessed trough a username and password with ftp. What i want is that the page will be able to be viewed for the people that i am sending the link to.
Any tips or advice?
Hard for me to explain when i dont exactly now all the correct terms, Thanks

I think the page may be HTTP protected and not FTP like i stated earlier...

If it's FTP, you can use
Default port is 21. If you're using that, it can be left off. If you're using something else, it needs to be included.
For a HTTP password prompt, you'll just have to include the username and password along with the link.

What he means is you need the following URL...
username = your FTP username provided by your hosting
password = your FTP password.
mydomain.com = your domain name.
pathToFolderOr/file.doc = the relative file path.
There's an inherent security risk linking to FTP secured content though, they'll know your password and could hack your account!
