This plugin provides the ability to configure WPSiteSync with an HTTP Authentication username and password to be used when communicating with a Target server that is set up with Authentication.
If you’re using WPSiteSync with a staging server but want to limit access to the staging server via HTTP Authentication, this is the plugin for you.
This add-on plugin for WPSiteSync allows you to configure an HTTP Authentication username and password that will be used in communicating with the Target server; allowing you to PUSH and PULL changes from your local site to your password protected staging site.
This plugin works the same whether your Source Site is a local install via DesktopServer or other local development environment, or a publicly hosted site. For more information on DesktopServer and local development tools, please visit our web site at: https://serverpress.com/get-desktopserver/
How it Works:
The WPSiteSync for HTTP Authentication add-on plugin sends the username and password with each API request made to the Target site. This allows you to configure your Target site with .htaccess rules that will limit access to user that have the password.
