Hi. I have gotten this to work before but I just upgraded my distro (pointclark) and am stuck.
The instruction on how to do this are pretty straight forward and easy, but everytime I go to the web page I am trying to protect the password never works. I get the same web page.....
This server could not verify that you are authorized to access the document requested. Either you supplied the wrong credentials (e.g., bad password), or your browser doesn't understand how to supply the credentials required.
I put the configuration in to the directory section of http.conf
The password is created and updated with out a hitch usung dbmmanage. Is there anything I could be overlooking here? I have restarted the web server after all changes to conf file and password updates. I even tried several locations for my passwords.dat file.

[Tue Feb 4 23:08:41 2003] [error] [client 192.168.1.102] DB user admin not found: /var/www/html/admin
You specified AuthDBUserFile /usr/local/apache/passwd/passwords.dat for dir /var/www/html/admin, and the error says db auth file: /var/www/passwords.dat, so I think it expects to see the db in another place. As a result it can't find the user too.
oops...I started changing locations and was trying different things and gave you the wrong lines in the error log.

is what I should have posted.
I went with just basic auth and it works fine but im still wondering why it wont work using db.
Well it was set to 0644 but it wasn't set for apache to read. I just changed it to owner root and group apache(user name of web server) . Restarted the web server. And still no go. Every thing is still set up as before in my first post and the error msg are the same.
Well I just tried AuthDBMType and AuthDBMUserFile and when I restarted it failed complaining about AuthDBMType and didnt took it out and left AuthDBMUserFile. It didnt complain but it didnt work out either. But now after I changed it all back, I went to restart and now I get something that looks like a lot more fun
Failed to start apache :
Starting httpd: Ouch! ap_mm_create(1048576, "/var/run/httpd.mm.4690") failed
Error: MM: mm:core: failed to acquire semaphore (No space left on device): OS: Identifier removed
The error log just says
semget : no space left on device
Any ideas on that?
I was getting ready to take out auth_dbm before this happened.
