I've 2 copies of this site synced with Subversion. One live version and something developer version. What I love to do would be to password safeguard the developer version, utilizing a .htaccess file:
AuthType Basic AuthName "Restricted Files" AuthUserFile ../.htpasswd AuthPGAuthoritative Off Require user dev
It is possible to method to sync this .htaccess file towards the live version with no password protection there?
I believed about something similar to
[if file exists ../.htpasswd] AuthType Basic AuthName "Restricted Files" AuthUserFile ../.htpasswd AuthPGAuthoritative Off Require user dev [/if]
[if currentDir = /path/to/dev/version] ... [/if]
Finaly found the solution right here: How can I password protect dev but not live while using SVN?
mod_setenvif is enabled it's possible to set different env vars
SetEnvIfNoCase ^HOST$ .+ unauthenticated SetEnvIfNoCase ^HOST$ ^dev\.example\.com$ !unauthenticated
