I have an issue where i set up htaccess on a folder ona virtual server i'm hosting. i'll use the following as the example. lets say the root directory for the virtual server is /home/user/htdocs/
in that directory there is a frequent_foto folder. this is not to be password protected but it is. inside frequent_foto is a folder called members which is password protected and works a treat. but what happens is when you access
you get prompted for a password, thats what i want. but say i go to http://virtualsite.com/freequent_foto
it then turns around asking for a password and it shouldn't.
the config files are below. any help would be great.
AuthName "Authentication Required"
require group fletchers
htaccess works fine on the webserver as other virtual servers use it and no problems are encountered.
the only change i made to httpd.conf is as follows.
