Subject [users@httpd] Password Auth not working
Date Thu, 10 Feb 2005 21:47:19 GMT
First off - let me warn you I am a 100% newbie and learning as I go.

My issue is that I have Apache 2.0.52 all setup and working fine on a 
Windows XP machine, with the exception of the password protection I 
require. It simply does not request a password.
FYI I am using Apache to rewrite my Tivo's web server (Tivo is basically a 
linux box), the idea being to protect this while allowing remote connectivity.

I have created a password file and tried placing it in the apache 
directory, the apache/bin dty and the root directory.
The script I have added to the httpd.conf file is as follows:

ServerAdmin your@email.address
DocumentRoot /var/www/

<Directory *>
AuthType Basic
AuthName "tivo"
AuthUserFile c:/password
require valid-user

RewriteEngine on
RewriteLog "c:/website/rewrite.log"
RewriteLogLevel 1
RewriteRule ^/(.*)$1 [P]


Where is the XP machine running Apache, and is the 
I haven't changed the documentroot above as I am not serving anything 
directly, and as noted, this script serves the page I want, just without 
the password.
As far as I can tell this should request a password...

Any ideas for help ?
