I have an apache web server (2.0.49) with a similar layout to this:

Alias /web1 "/srv/www/public"

etc....there are three or so of these
They work fine and i have set a password on one of those aliases.

But i have installed another application that runs from port 8000, there is 
no restriction on this and the apache config wasn't modified for this to 
So I was wandering if i can set some sort of password when a user tries to 
go to http://localhost:8000/

Hope this clears it up a bit.
