 The .htpasswd file was actually set up correctly using the htpasswd command.

Forgive me if I am asking questions that have already been asked. The
error message you are getting "user not found", seems to indicate to me
that you are using the 'file-owner' syntax in your configuration file.
Is that correct? Have you tried using 'valid-user' or other syntax? Any
difference in results?
