This may be slightly off topic so please forgive me, but... I am trying to 
get my apache server up and running with PHP and basic authentication.  
Everything appears to be okay except the authentication portion.  When I try 
to access the directory requiring authentication I reciever a 500 error and 
the following in the web server log?  Is this a configuration problem with 
apache and/or PHP?

[Mon Apr 29 15:04:34 2002] [crit] [client XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX] configuration 
error:  couldn't check user.  No user file?: /secure

My .htaccess file is as follows in the /secure directory:

AuthName "G-ISAC Members Only"
AuthType Basic
AuthUserFile /etc/users
require valid-user

yes, the /etc/users file exists.  I have tried changing the permissions to 
777 just for testing purpose without resolve.  Any help would be apprciated.

Thank you.
