.htaccess


Hi all

I am running apache on my redhat 7.3 machine. I am having trouble with .htaccess. Here is the contents of my file:
AuthType Basic
AuthName "Restricted Directory"
AuthUserFile /var/www/html/private/.passwd
Require valid-user

My password file is at /var/www/html/private/.passwd with a user: test

When i go to the site it asks for a password, but i cant get in. Here's my error log:
[Mon Sep 23 11:19:31 2002] [error] (13)Permission denied: access to /private/ failed for 192.168.0.10, reason: Authentication failure


Does anyone knows what goes wrong???

Did you encrypt your password using htpasswd?
