Access To Password Protected Directoy

First time using wordpress. I want to access a password protected directory ( .htaccess )that I created for a php/mysql control panel.

When I try to go to that directory it gives me a page not found error.

eg. [\_protected/index.php](

It’s like that wordpress is only allowing directories/files that it has indexed. I looked at the default .htaccess file but it says it would be overwritten so I can’t add ‘allow directory’ there.

There must be an easy way to allow me to access a directory on my site.

Thanks for any help.
