I have a Centos5 box at home that I am using as a web server. I am trying to password protect the myphpadmin folder with htaccess. I am using a valid htaccess file (I copied it from a working website www.woodwardlink.com/secure
). I access my home server via the ip address, for example 220.127.116.11. The phpmyadmin directory structure is inside /var/www/html and the .htaccess file is inside the phpmyadmin directory. When I type 18.104.22.168/phpmyadmin into my web browser, it just rips through to the phpmyadmin stuff without prompting for a password.
