Subject [users@httpd] htaccess authentication not working
Date Fri, 06 Jun 2003 18:21:45 GMT
I am trying to set up authentication to the webserver using the .htaccess
file. Here are the steps that I have completed:

		1. Modified the httpd.conf file where AccessFileName
		2. Changed the Directory setting as follows"
					<Directory />
						Options Follow SymLinks
						AllowOverride AuthConfig
		3. Restarted the Apache server
		4. Created an .htaccess file in /var/www/Documents with the
following syntax:
				AuthName	"Radiation Oncology"
				AuthType	Basic
				Require 	valid-user
		5. Created a .users file:
			/usr/local/apache/bin/htpasswd -c
		6. Restarted Apache for good measure.

I am not getting getting prompted for a password at the welcome screen. The
document root directory is /var/www/Documents.
What am I missing here?
