Make a file a call it to :
pw.php

Code:
<?php

$LOGIN_INFORMATION = array(
  'asd' => 'root',
  'Laszl0w' => 'adminpass',
  'turnmeon' => '19960806'  
);

// request login? true - show login and password boxes, false - password box only
define('USE_USERNAME', true);

// User will be redirected to this page after logout
define('LOGOUT_URL', 'http://www.custommta.cf/drx.php');

// time out after NN minutes of inactivity. Set to 0 to not timeout
define('TIMEOUT_MINUTES', 0);

// This parameter is only useful when TIMEOUT_MINUTES is not zero
// true - timeout time from last activity, false - timeout time from login
define('TIMEOUT_CHECK_ACTIVITY', true);

Usage:
On top of your secured php file.
Code:
<?php include("pw.php"); ?>
Login Credentials,you should change it:
Code:
$LOGIN_INFORMATION = array(
  'asd' => 'root',
  'Laszl0w' => 'adminpass',
  'turnmeon' => '19960806'  
);
If some people's wants to see your secured php file the server will ask them to login to watch it ;)
If he's logged in it will showed for him.

U can also do it with a .htaccess and a .htpasswd :)
And if your whole website gets leaked? Suddenly we have a password, but I guess that'll be the least of your problems then.

My point: FinFisher (german spyware to government company) had their files leaked a while ago and they relied fully on .htpasswd, they did not hash any of their sfuff, and they even used the same password for multiple things.

+1 for being more secure than OP
