hello tommy here
my .htaccess file is in the folder i wish to protected
AuthName Authentication Required!!
Require user <username>
after creating the .htaccess file i put the following command in
htpasswd -c /someotherdir/.htpasswd <username>
it asked for a password so that seem to work.
it created my usr and pass in the.htpasswd file.
I restarted the httpd and no go..
