.htaccess: Fundementals


Hello All,
I've come for more help with the fundementals. Obvious, it has to do with .htaccess this time.
I have a folder that's being accessed by httpd /home/domain/public_html. When I make /home/domain/public_html/.htaccess with the following directive I receive "403 Forbidden."

Order deny,allow
Allow from 192.168.2.0/255.255.255.240
Deny from all

Permissions on the file, if they matter, are as follows:
-rw-r--r-- 1 user user 70 Jul 30 23:53 .htaccess

SELinux permissions:
-rw-r--r-- user user user_ubject_r:httpd_sys_content_t .htaccess
(FC6 server)

Does anyone have any clues as to why this would work? Before you suggest that I should be using httpd.conf file to set these permissions, I want you to know that I'm configuring it from a virtual server. Thank you for your time.

Besides the file context have you set the SELinux boolean to allow access to files in home directories?

setsebool -P httpd_enable_homedirs on

Also, do you have an AllowOverride configured for the directory in httpd.conf? Without that, the .htaccess file is ignored.

Thank you for your responses macemoneta. I temporarily disables SELinux protection and I received the same error. And as for AllowOverride, that was set.
