apache, .htaccess in diffrent dirs..


Hello all,
I got this problem with my apache running on my gentoo server...=(

My document root is
/var/www/localhost/htdocs

and if I put in a .htaccess file that looks like this in
/var/www/localhost/htdocs/test/

Code:
/var/www/localhost/htdocs
AuthUserFile /var/www/localhost/.htpasswd
AuthGroupFile /dev/null
AuthName EnterPassword
AuthType Basic

require user smurf
and it works realy well.. I get an box that asks me

Then I have a lot of vhosts ... For instance one that goes to
/var/www/localhost/www.mydomain.com

my vhosts.conf has a line that looks like this:
DocumentRoot /var/www/localhost/www.mydomain.com

I can browse that page without problem, yet when I put in the exactly same .htaccess file as abowe, i dont get to a responce that asks for username and password.. It seems to skip the .htaccess file

Does anyone now what I have done wrong?
Can anyone help me??=)

Regardz,

If you're on the same browser session that has authenticated for one user (for the same dir) then the browser will send the auth info without prompting.

Try testing on a new browser session.

Use the "AllowOverride AuthConfig" directive inside your vhost definition as you do in your DocumentRoot

Hmm thanks...
But I get the following message after doing a

/etc/init.d/apache2 restart


* Stopping apache2...
Syntax error on line 93 of /usr/lib/apache2/conf/vhosts/vhosts.conf:
AllowOverride not allowed here [ ok ]
* Apache2 has detected a syntax error in your configuration files:
Syntax error on line 93 of /usr/lib/apache2/conf/vhosts/vhosts.conf:
AllowOverride not allowed here


So..... How do I allow AllowOverride =)..

You have to put it inside the <Directory ...> </Directory> in your vhost definition, like this:
Code:
<VirtualHost *>
        ServerName mydomain.com
        DocumentRoot /var/www/localhost/www.mydomain.com
        ...
        <Directory /var/www/localhost/www.mydomain.com>
            AllowOverride AuthConfig
        </Directory>
        ...
    </VirtualHost>
