Apache2 .htaccess - Unable To Get Password Prompt.


I am unable to get this blasted apache2 to prompt for a password while placing a .htaccess file in the directory i browse to.

I used htpasswd2 -c /home/someuser/password user to make the password file.

then edited httpd.conf

old:

# forbid access to the entire filesystem by default
<Directory />
Options None
AllowOverride None
Order deny,allow
Deny from all
</Directory>

new:

# forbid access to the entire filesystem by default
<Directory />
Options None
AllowOverride AuthConfig
Order deny,allow
Deny from all
</Directory>

then created the .htaccess file

AuthType Basic
AuthName "Restricted Files"
AuthUserFile /home/someuser/password
Require user someuser



Can anyone help?

suse 9.1 (ftp install)

.... don't use .htaccess files, make a directory statement directly in the httpd.conf file and you'll be fine ... like this:

<Directory /your/directory/with/pw/access>
AuthType Basic
AuthName "Restricted Files"
AuthUserFile /home/someuser/password
Require user someuser
</Directory>

This is exactly the same behaviour i can see with my Suse91 Apache2.

It seems, the .htaccess files are only evaluated in case i put a <Directory> statement for the procected dir into the conf file and change the access to Deny from all. I'm confused with this behaviour, Apache 1.3 worked different
