This is kludgey but avoids .htaccess and SSL.

We use SSH into the management console running Apache, then ssh forward
port localhost:80 to the remote machine.

A local /etc/hosts entry for may be required if the web server
redirects to a fully qualified domain name, which will force the browser
to use the real addressrather than the tunnel. Make sure the web server
only listens to localhost and voila you have some access control on the
ACID console...
