My authorization is working.. that is not the problem here. I've used the Auth... directives to place enable an htpasswd file, and this part is working
. (and indeed, to allow these commands in an .htaccess file, you need the AllowOverride; I know about this)
My question is a little different. If I've enabled an password on the website root folder, how can I disable it for a certain sub folder? ..something like "AuthType None"
Right now, I've solved my problem temporary by playing with the require user directives, and allowing another user in the subfolder.
