You simply have to allow access to the target directory (since it is
above the doc root, it would usually be "denied"). Just add "Allow from
all" in the directory container.

BTW, you may be suffering from the popular misconception that
AllowOverride and .htaccess files are needed for password protection.
They're not. If you can edit the config, as you can, it's usually better
to put all the Auth directives straight into the directory container.

Rgds,
Owen Boyle
