An example of how the .htpasswd file should look as follows:
This will create “admin” as the user name and “password” as the password. You can generate your own by going to this link – http://www.htaccesstools.com/htpasswd-generator/
Be aware that files beginning with a dot are invisible. You may have to edit your settings on the FTP app you’re using so that you can see them.
Once the files are created and saved, you can now go to http://your-domain.com/pear_admin/index.php. It will ask for the user name and password. Once you are logged in, you can now manage Pear via web browser. That’s it! Now you can run PEAR on a shared account from Godaddy. One less complaint :)
