Subject Mac OS X Server: setting secure directory access
Date Mon, 21 Jan 2002 07:11:52 GMT
This may be outside most people's experience here, but I thought I'd 
give it a shot.

I am trying to password protect a specific web directory for browser 
access. I created the required passwordfile and htaccess file and put 
them where they belonged. But I don't get the standard prompt for 
user name and password. It tells me the directory doesn't exist. Take 
the htaccess out and it's accessible.

It's not a matter of changing the httpd.conf file. The user interface 
overrides it with it's own conf file. And the documentation and books 
I've read don't say much except I need to create a realm.

Anyone know the solution?
