I have been tring to password protect a directory on my webserver and I can't get it to work. I have read on pages on the internet about the subject but I guess I am stupid. I have Redhat 8.0 with apache 2.0.40. I have created a .htaccess file in the folder I want to protect. /var/www/html/private
Its contents are as follows:
<Limit GET POST>
I was also playing with permissions to. The .htaccess file is currently set:
the .htpasswd file is located in /var/www
its contents are in the format
the permissions include
I have started and stopped the httpd service numerous times and when I go to the private folder on the website it just displays my directory without any password boxes or anything. I created the .htpasswd with the htpasswd -c command. I don't know what I am doing wrong. Any suggestions would be greatly appricated. Thanks.
I appricate your response. I tryed to put the overide line in the conf file but I guess I got the syntax wrong cause httpd wouldn't load. Anyway I put the the path in a <directory> section of the conf file and it works. I guess all the howtos I found were all 1.3 and not 2.x. Thanks again for your help.
