Thanks, that's probably best advice.  I've got a config file I use
for creating httpd.conf, and it now has sections for Redirects and
for protecting by basic auth (using <Location>) which seems to work.

They are just going to have to learn to reload the server when they
make changes.

I don't like using .htaccess, in general.


Oh, and using "order" didn't help either.  Not sure why, but have to
move on. ;)
