I have an XML feed that's being generated for Google Merchant. How would I be able to protect the file which is under a https with a username and password so that Google would be able to access the file?

Assign a htaccess and htpasswrd file to the server for the specific data feed url, if you do not know how to do this, contact your web developer or contact the ecommerce platform support or plugin support.

 

Hope it helps.

I recommend contacting your hosting company or searching your hosting company documentation, as I have no idea about Windows based servers.
