thanks glen - looks like this is still not working. No password Prompt here is what I did: cat of /usr/home/<user_name>/public_html/<subdir>/.htaccess --- snip --- AuthType Basic AuthUserFile /usr/home/<username>/public_html/<subdir>/.htpasswd AuthName "Protected Area" require user glob --- snip --- now cat of /usr/home/<username>/public_html/<subdir>/.htpasswd --- snip --- glob:uKRB.ktQoL./I --- snip --- and now the file permissions --- snip --- ls -al .ht* -rw-r--r-- 1 <username> <username> 124 Apr 18 21:33 .htaccess -rw-r--r-- 1 <username> <username> 19 Apr 18 21:34 .htpasswd --- snip --- Please somebody hand me a clue stick? from the /usr/local/etc/apache/httpd.conf --- snip --- AccessFileName .htaccess # # The following lines prevent .htaccess files from being viewed by # Web clients. Since .htaccess files often contain authorization # information, access is disallowed for security reasons. Comment # these lines out if you want Web visitors to see the contents of # .htaccess files. If you change the AccessFileName directive above, # be sure to make the corresponding changes here. # # Also, folks tend to use names such as .htpasswd for password # files, so this will protect those as well. # <Files ~ "^\.ht"> Order allow,deny Deny from all Satisfy All </Files> --- snip --- - Noah > > Best, > Glenn > > _______________________________________________ > [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list > http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions > To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]" _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
