Not able to access webpage on apache

We are trying to access a specified directory with user name and password using /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf. file.
I have created .htpasswd and .htaccess file in the same directory path .
The problem is when i am trying to access the directory , it displays username and password window. Even i give the correct username and password , it has not entered into the directory.It again displays the username and password window.

The .htaccess file has following lines,

AuthName "restricted stuff"
AuthType Basic
AllowOverride AuthConfig
AuthUserFile /var/www/html/java/.htpasswd
require valid-user
satisfy all

and also change the permissions of 644 to .htpasswd, .htaccess files.

Please clarify the doubts as soon as possible.

Thanks in advance,

How did you make your .htpasswd file? Did you use the "htpasswd" command, or with some other method?

Also, you shouldn't have a "AllowOverride" in your .htaccess file; it can only go in the httpd.conf, but it's probably already allowed by default anyway.

Thank you for your response.
I hav created .htpasswd file by using the command
# htpasswd -c <location of htpasswd file> <user_name>

And also i hav placed htaccess and htpasswd files in the same directory.
I removed the line "Allowoverride Authconfig " from htaccess file. But still i am not able to view the web page even if i give correct username and password.

Pls Help me.

Thanks in advance.
