    In other words: It isn't possible via Plesk?

    This means, the domain user must have shell access to create htpasswd files, .htpasswd file cannot live in a directory above document root - not the best solution...
    It seems I must write my own tool :(

    Of couse .htaccess can be created in any directory under DOCUMENT_ROOT - you don't need SHELL access to do that - just a simple FTP upload will do it.

    But search the forum for the solution - if I remember correctly there's been written about it a couple of times.

    It can still be managed by Plesk - only thing you need to do "manualy" is to upload the .htaccess file - the rest can be controled by Plesk.
