I am using apache's basic http authentication to control access, however, I only want to control one level of directory access, meaning, I only want directory a to be authenticated, but not a's children(eg. a/b), is this possible?

<Location /a/>
Options -Indexes
Order Deny,Allow
Allow from all

AuthType Basic
AuthName "Members Only"
AuthUserFile /home/xxxx/.htpasswd
require valid-user

</Location>
