I would like to resitrict the initial access to a single file using .htaccess. I tried through CPanel, but that is for whole directories and I don't have the know how to write this on my own.
The one file is part of a cart system that steps through the same file 4 times (Product Select, Ship/Bill info, CC info, Order Confirm). I do not want the password to be triggered each step of the way just on the initial page request.
Is there a way to do this with .htaccess?
