Subject Re: [users@httpd] You don't have permission to access
Date Fri, 17 Feb 2006 23:03:04 GMT
I'm a complete rookie at this, but this sounds like what I just did on my 
site.  I don't recognize your constructs, but I found a great resource here:

http://www.yolinux.com/TUTORIALS/LinuxTutorialApacheAddingLoginSiteProtection.html

For simplicity (and potentially performance), I opted to place the controls in
httpd.conf rather than using htaccess files (I'm only using one directory at 
this point).  One other erratum is that while the site above recommends putting
the htpasswd file in the directory it serves, the apache.org documentation
points out the possible security risk of doing so.  I placed mine in an "etc"
directory above the site's root instead.  Makes sense; works great.

You must be on the right track, because at least the server is guarding the
directory.
