Subject [users@httpd] Protecting directory :: The most strangest thing
Date Wed, 22 Oct 2008 14:17:56 GMT

I'm trying to protect a directory, something I've done countless times before.

Now, instead of appearing the dialog with the login and password
boxes, I get a 404 !!!

Here's my files:


AuthType Basic
AuthName imgs
AuthUserFile /home/absinto/public_html/imgs/.htpasswd
require valid-user



Would you be so kind to try:


The login and the password are both "imgs" (without the quotes).

This boggles me!

As a last note, I have no access to the Apache configuration file.

Any help would be appreciated.

Warm Regards,
Mário Gamito
