Frontend authentication

Hi Omeka Team

I am using Omeka in a intranet for managment of my items and collections.

I need to control the access with an unique user/pass for the Frontend GUI (that is to say, this user/pass is not relationated with the users/pass of Omeka).

Please, is there any option to put this authentication ?

I can see .htaceess in Omeka Folder. Is this the right way ?

Thank you very much

You should be able to use Apache-level access controls, like the ones you might put in an .htaccess, just fine with Omeka.

You'll probably want to get Omeka installed first, then add the password-protection, but I believe that will work fine.
