Apache Auto Renew SSL on Password Protected site

I have a web site that is password protected using Apache basic autenticiation.

I used following code in Apache config to password protect.

The problem is when SSL need auto renew, it need url like http://domain/.well-known/ to be accessable with out any password for domain ownership verification.

To allow .well-known folder to be accessable with out password, i added following code in apache configuration file.

After restarting apache, urls startng with .well-known work with out needing any password.
