Unfortunately my institution at this time requires a password at the
server-level, although I would like to eventually just use the Galaxy user
system (which I am also using anyway)

My Apache configuration includes the following in the new virtual host
config file, but it isn't working.  No password prompt.  Is there an
obvious error?

        <Directory "/home/galaxy/bin/galaxy-dist">
                AllowOverride All
                AuthName "Yay Bioinformatics"
                AuthType Basic
                AuthUserFile /etc/apache2/.htpasswd
                AuthGroupFile /dev/null
        </Directory>
