Apache: login dialog presented without .htaccess

I configured Apache to have a secured directory. Unfortunately, I am prompted in public directories for a user name and password. I can access public pages by clicking cancel when presented with a login dialog. The members directory is secured properly. The members directory is the only directory with an .htaccess file.

Here is some code from my Apache configuration file:

DocumentRoot /home/abc/www
ServerAlias *
ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ "/home/abc/www/cgi-bin/"
<Directory /home/abc/www/members>
AllowOverride AuthConfig

How can I fix this problem?

Try specifying:

Order allow,deny
Allow from All

for the base dir.

to the base directory did not work.

When accessing HTML files in the base directory Apache looks to the .htaccess file in the members directory. I do not have an .htaccess file in the root directory. Does anyone have any more ideas?
