Subject Re: [users@httpd] Help needed with basic auth
Date Thu, 01 Feb 2007 23:23:33 GMT
Did you make sure your scan included all .htaccess
files. Depending on the syntax you ran to "scan" your
Apache directory, it may not have scanned your
.htaccess files.

I am thinking one of these files may contain a
reference to that file.
