Subject RE: [users@httpd] Problem with setting up authentication on an Apache2 server
Date Tue, 04 Jan 2011 17:56:33 GMT
Hi there --

Thanks for your reply. I checked the error.log file, and I came across the
following entry:

[Tue Jan 04 11:08:34 2011] [alert] [client 132.183.12.230]
/var/www/logs/.htaccess: AuthUserFile takes 1-2 arguments, text file containing
user IDs and passwords.

I checked the .htaccess file, and it turns out there was a 'white space' in the
file that was causing the problem.
Once I removed that, the authentication worked. 

Thanks for the help.
