To set a cron job on a website which is protected with .htaccess/.htpasswd password protection,

instead of setting cron job as

wget -O - -q -t


curl --compressed

Set the cron job as below

curl -u admin:PassworD --silent --compressed

In the above cron, we have specified  .htaccess /.htpasswd protection. details where username is admin and password is PassworD

That's all..
