Ok I was trying to set up a directory in which only I can access with my name and password. I have apache running on a windows xp machine, and the permissions for the directory im trying to make are only me (in windows permissions). I created a new user and pass with htpasswd. Now in my httpd.conf file my directory thing looks like this:
<Directory /root/ />
AuthName "Restricted Files"
AuthUserFile C:\Program Files\Apache Group\Apache2\bin\passwd.txt
Require user Joey
Now the folder I am trying to protect is under htdocs (the document root) \root\. So the full path is C:\Program Files\Apache Group\Apache2\htdocs\root\
The user i created with htpasswd is Joey. When I try to access the directory root I just get forbidden. Nothing else. No prompt. Am I doing anything wrong?
