.htaccess and cgi-bin (apache of course)
This is with Apache 1.3.27
I can't get Apache to pay attention to the presence of an .htaccess file within the cgi-bin itself. I figure there must be some simple setting in httpd.conf, but google and the apache manual are being mean to me, and evidently this behavior is rather new so I'm pulling up a lot of arcana.
I know the file perms on the .htaccess and .htpasswd are right, I just copied them to outside of the cgi-bin and all was fine.
BTW, this is in order to get IDS to function: ids.sourceforge.net (crappy FAQ)
