I'm trying to let a client upload their images on a prototype version of their site that is blanket protected by htaccess in the root folder.
However SWFUpload fails with a 401 (not authorized), because it doesn't pass the logged in details.
Is there anyway for me to protect a site from access but still allow the admins to upload files?
I've tried only protecting the sapphire folder but it still fails.

SWFUpload will not work with secure or password protected connections because the Flash request starts a new session. You need to make sure the upload_url, which I believe is /FileDataObjectManager_Controller/handleswfupload, is open to the public. You can get the exact url by setting SWFUploadConfig::debug(); and looking in the debug window.

Thanks UncleCheese - I thought it'd be something to do with the Flash element (it has the same problem in Rails!).
Do you (or anyone) know how to turn off htaccess protection for a single folder when the whole site is protected?
