Hi I have a static web application mapped to a URL.

It's labeled as "Static only (no .htaccess)" in the control panel. Does this mean I would be unable to configure HTTP Basic Authentication for a directory w/ static media?

That is correct as a "Static only (no .htaccess)" does not allow you to configure http authentication. You would need to use a different application type if you need http authentication.

thank you. Can you suggest the 'simplest to configure' or 'lowest overhead' app to use for serving some static media with HTTP Basic Auth

You'd want to use a 'Static/CGI/PHP-5.x' application.
