Subject [users@httpd] Authentication problem
Date Thu, 31 Jul 2003 02:19:17 GMT

  i try to use authentication for certain directories.
I want to authenticate /var/www/html directory. 
<Directory "/var/www/html">
AllowOverride Authconfig

placed the password file 'users' in ServerRoot dir
created by htpasswd -cm users username1

placed the .htaccess file in /var/www/html with

AuthName "restricted stuff"
AuthType Basic
AuthUserFile /etc/httpd/users
require user username1

I get the login window when i try to access the
directory. when i give the valid username and password
it rejects me. what could be the problem

Thank you
