The other day Paul Reed pointed some people at documents describing how to
use .htaccess authorization in a directory.
I tried that on a stock KRUD 10/02 system and it didn't work. Specifically,
I put a .htaccess file in a directory that I had no trouble accessing via a
web browser. I don't mean that it authenticated me, but that it didn't even
try. Didn't work when I tried it using groups, either. Not a hint of trouble
when I looked at the apache access and error logs.
The documents he pointed people at were actually for the NCSA web server, so
I went to apache.org and read the docs there too, and they're almost exactly
the same as the NCSA web server, so I don't think the problem is the
Here's what my file said.
AuthName "Luke's Protected Directory"
<Limit GET POST PUT>
require user fred
I skimmed through the httpd.conf file and couldn't figure out any reason why
this wouldn't work.
So what am I missing?
