Password Protecting a Folder on UNIX-based Website

P: n/a
hi..I'm working on a project that requires files to be password
protected on a UNIX based site. The people that own the web site want
to be able to change the password every so often. Unfortunately, I
have restricted access only to FTP so I really can't log in to any kind
of Administrative Console or Admin Panel and see if there are folders
that can be password protected and then have passwords changed on them.
The people I'm contracted to work on the site for aren't the most
computer savvy people though....so..my question is:
Is there a user friendly way of password protecting a folder on a UNIX
based site? Thanks in advanced for any response.
