Subject [users@httpd] htaccess with 500 error?
Date Mon, 06 Jan 2003 07:26:19 GMT
OK I have spent way to much time password protecting this directory and
still no success. Here are the details:

.htaccess in secure directory called /secure

AuthName Secure
AuthType Basic
AuthUserFile /usr/local/passwords/herbalifestore4u/.htpasswd
AuthAuthoritative On

<limit GET POST>
require valid-user
order allow,deny
allow from all

httpd.conf directory section
# Directories...

<Directory "/">
     Options FollowSymLinks

     AllowOverride All

    Allow from all


<Directory "/var/www/html">
     Options Indexes Includes FollowSymLinks

     AllowOverride AuthConfig
     Allow from all

    Order Deny,Allow

<Directory "/var/www/icons">
     Options Indexes MultiViews

     AllowOverride None
     Allow from all

    Order allow,deny

<Directory "/var/www/cgi-bin">
     Options ExecCGI

     AllowOverride None
     Allow from all

    Order allow,deny

permissions are all set to 777 for testing purposes only

Here is my error log:

[Sun Jan  5 01:07:23 2003] [alert] [client]
/var/www/html/herbalifestore4u/secure/.htaccess: Invalid command ' <  Ãõ >',
perhaps mis-spelled or defined by a module not included in the server

I have read everything on this possible and still no solutions
