Subject [users@httpd] Password protecting directories
Date Thu, 10 Apr 2003 17:11:54 GMT
I'm having a problem password protecting certain directories on my webserver.
Everything was working until I started working with AuthGroupFile
I've included a copy of the error message, httpd.conf code and my group file

[Thu Apr 10 13:03:03 2003] [crit] [client] configuration error:
couldn't check access.  No groups file?: /sidebar

<Directory /u01/mgfs/mgfsbizpage/sidebar>
    Options FollowSymLinks Includes
    #AllowOverride None
    AuthType Basic
    AuthName "Restricted Sidebar Files"
    AuthUserFile /u01/mgfs/mgfsbizpage/.htpasswd
    AuthGroupFile /u01/mgfs/mgfsbizpage/sidebargroup.txt
    Require group sidebargroup
