There are a few things you need to do to get authorisation running - did
you allow the .htaccess file to override the apache config? You do this
with: (in httpd.conf)

<Directory /dir/you/want/to/authorise>
  AllowOverride all
</Directory>

but read the docs for this directive to understand what it does.
