I've got a directory /people that's password protected against the hosting user interface.

Then I've got a page that's the people page in Wordpress and also the permalink is /people.

There's no actual page inside since i have would like it to be controlled from Wordpress... so when you are there, and make the username and pass, you receive this error:

Forbidden You do not have permission to gain access to /people/ about this server.

I merely want there to become a password protected directory that shares exactly the same URL like a permalink in Wordpress... How do i do that? Just help!
