has anyone played with the .htaccess files before?
this is what i have tried so far.
AuthName "Invite Only"
this is one dir up from my pub_html, as to the documentation of apache 2.0
i have done the htpasswd -c /home/emetib/passwd username passwd, and i get the pretty little prompt asking me to put my username and passwd in, but i can not get access.
i have put it into the /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf file under the virtual host section and even under the "# Each directory to which Apache has access...." section, with no results except 'Authentification Failed'.
i have changed the AllowOverride to AllowAuth, like documentation says, still nothing except "piss off".
i'm really starting to pull my hair out, and i don't have much of it to begin with. please help.
apache 2.0, red hat 9.0(i believe, not my server
), sorry if the mods think that this should be in networking. i thought that since it was more of a software problem it should go here.
thanks and cheers.
p.s. and yes i have restarted the httpd everytime that i have changed the configs. both, the httpd.conf and the .htaccess file.
