Subject: Authorization problem.

Hi everyone!
I am trying to implement a very simple authorization scheme with my
apache webserver 1.3.19 on linux.
I put a .htaccess file in the directory I want, which has AllowOverride
all on the <Directory > directive.
The .htaccess file looks like this:
AuthType Basic
AuthUserFile /http/httpasswd
AuthName "Restricted Area"
Require valid-user
The file /http/httpasswd was created with htpasswd -c just as the howto
says and has permissions set for the user wwwrun (even with permissions
for everybody it still doesn't work...)
Now the problem is that I get a Pop up dialog box, but I can't view the
page... the username and password are not accepted! (both IE and
Mozilla). The dialog box appears again and again and again.......
Can anyone help me?
Thanks in advance,
