His access scheme *is* actually working now. The error 500 (internal server error) is from
the resource which apache executes *after* the request is accepted. If the access were failing,
he would get a 403.

This is a good example of why it is important to include the actual error message from the
error log and not just say "it doesn't work". The browser error is very limited and often
inadequate for debugging. He's lucky he even got a response code - if he'd enabled "friendly"
messages he'd have got a "Page cannot be displayed" which is worse than useless.
