Subject [users@httpd] reading .htpasswd file
Date Wed, 16 Jul 2003 00:20:39 GMT
although configuration in httpd.conf shown below seems ok, and
permissions are set to most permissive on directory and .htpasswd file,
apache cannot open and read file, and thus browser denies access when
username and password are entered in user authentication pop up. problem
persists across browsers, and methods (i.e. <Directory...</Directory>>
vs. .htaccess). Error log confirms that apache cannot open .htpasswd
file created with .htpasswd, despite moving database to diffrent
directories. I have also tried changing users in httpd.conf. Thank
