Subject Authorization problem.
Date Fri, 18 Jan 2002 15:07:50 GMT
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,
