Subject [users@httpd] htpasswd w/ Apache 2.0.44/45
Date Wed, 02 Apr 2003 03:21:18 GMT


here comes again another problem with htaccess... I've fought against this
about 20 hours now by searching similar problems with solutions, but no

The problem is that htpasswd- authentication doensn't work at all. I even
don't get a prompting box for uname and pass...

In my httpd.conf there is AllowOverride AuthConfig for every <Directory>

Apache2 isn't ignoring the .htaccess file, because if I garbage it, A2
shouts for 500.

My .htaccess looks like this:

AuthName "insider"
AuthType "Basic"
AuthUserFile "/azkaban/www/sec/insider"
Require valid-user

and it's permissions are:

-rw-r-----    1 www-data www-data       95 Apr  2 05:08 .htaccess

The sec- folder is available for A2, and the permissions for the
htpasswd:d file are:

-rw-r-----    1 www-data www-data       61 Apr  2 01:59 insider

I've tried to watch the log files too, but there comes absolutely nothing
(not even when I've turned on the debug- logging).

I'm astonished about this.
