Subject [users@httpd] .htaccess + htpasswd NOT working
Date Mon, 24 Feb 2003 19:31:43 GMT

I am using Apache and would like to configure it for 
Authorization/Authentication. I read the article posted at

I made all the changes to my config to make it work.

When I start my APache and point in my Browser https://My.IP.ADDR.ESS
I simply get the html page.... What I wanted is a PROMPT for User to enter 
the UserName and Password (which was created by htaccess command)

This is what I did:
# htpasswd -c /usr/local/apache/passwd/passwords bill
New password: gates
Re-type new password: gates
Adding password for user bill

My .htaccess file has following:
AuthType Basic
AuthName "By Invitation Only"
AuthUserFile /usr/local/apache/passwd/passwords
Require user bill

Can anyone there help me out on how to get a UserPrompt when USers click my 
web site?
