help me with .htaccess


Recommended Posts

I have spent days on this and I still cant figure it out..

I have created .htaccess file and upload it in /admin folder

.htaccess looks like this:


AuthType Basic

AuthName "Locked Area"

AuthUserFile /www/pwd/.htpasswd

require valid-user


Then I have created pwd folder and put in it .htpasswd file that contains username and password corectly generated! I used generator from www.smarterscripts.com!


When I go to admin section I corectly get window which requires my username and password, and when I type them nothing happens. After 3 retries I get message 401 Authorization Required..


Where is the problem?

Yes, you can find it there and that looks like the path I would try. It won't hurt anyting if it is wrong. It just won't work, as you are finding out, so give it a try.
