When you issue a request for a protected resource, is it delivered (without
challenge) or do you get an error message? Is there anything related in the
error log?

It is not very easy to do without knowing anything except "doesn't work";
it's like "my car doesn't work, tell me what's wrong with it" (without
hands-on access!).

Please give some more bits of information:
- What Apache and OS version
- Exactly what you tried to do (configurationwise)
- Exactly what you expected to happen
- Exactly what actually did happen. Also excerpts from logs etc.
- Anything that might be "odd" with your config, such as rewrite rules,
   aliases, redirects etc.
