Adds protection to a directory owned by some virtual server

This command sets up protection for a web directory under a virtual server selected with the --domain flag. The directory to protect is set with the --path flag, which can be followed by either a full path or one relative to the domain’s home directory.

The optional --desc flag can be used to set the description for the directory shown when an end user accesses it via a web browser. The password hashing format to use can be changed from the default with one of the flags --crypt, --md5, --sha1 or --digest.
