Subject RE: permission denied to open password file
Date Tue, 25 Dec 2001 07:22:27 GMT
Hi,
I used root access to do everything
I follow the instruction in apache website
Change the ownership of the file
Doing chmod 640
But I put the access control in main config, not in .htaccess
The file now is own by nobody.nogroup
But when I try to open the web, it ask for password
Even I type the correct login and password, still can't open the website
When I look in the apache log, I content error message about permission
denied to open the file, but the file is in there.
Help me please.
Thanks

Soragan,

What log in are you using??  You should be at a root access to
change any of the password files.   Please reply back to the entire
group
so that others can see what is happening and what has been tried.
