Yes I am aware of that and have tried from a couple of computers. The 
.htaccess file is
AuthUserFile /home/httpd/vhosts/
AuthName "Password Protected Area"
AuthType Basic

<limit GET POST>
require valid-user

DirectoryIndex admin.php

I have put this back up if you want to have a go.

A little bit of history. I had everything working fine then moved to a 
new server. The provider told me that the set-up was identical as both 
servers were made from the same image. So I just backed up the 
/home/vhosts directory. Everything works except this.
