    I'm going to implement interesting thing in my web server configuration.
    So, the main requirement is:
    1) Allow access to some directory if user clicked on a link on the same site
    2) Ask about login and password if request was direct, like written directly in web browser's URL window.
    Something like:
    <Directory /var/www/html/restricted>
       <If "request was not direct">
           AuthType Basic
           AuthName "Restricted Content"
           AuthUserFile /etc/apache2/.htpasswd
           Require valid-user
    Code (ApacheConf):
    Can someone help me with it?
