Subject Re: [users@httpd] Apache 2.0.48 SHA encryption authentication not working
Date Mon, 10 Nov 2003 00:53:21 GMT
Hi Josh
thanks for reply.
yes , i am no expert in Apache. I just copied .htaccess from working system which has apache
this new system has apache 2.0.48. i tried removing the lines u asked for , but still it doesn't
work. password file created using htpasswd -s ( SHA )
AuthUserFile /usr/local/www/etc/apache2.pwd
AuthType basic
AuthName "Private Area"
#<Limit GET POST>
#    Order Allow,Deny
#    Allow from
#    Deny from
    Require valid-user

Does SHA doesn't work with Apache 2  ?
I get error 
[Sun Nov 09 16:45:20 2003] [error] [client] user guest: authentication failure
for "/private.php": Password Mismatch
if i remove htaccess , SSL works fine
any suggestion

By the fact that you use 
, I can tell that you haven't
read the docs. So I would start there. (The 
lines should be ommitted!).

Next, check the error log and see what it says.
