Throw away that documentation. It's over a decade out of date. Try here instead:

No. You'll solve it by removing the <Limit > and </Limit> altogether.

My best guess at your problem is that you are missing one of the
required modules to do auth. As the above docs suggest, you'll need at
least mod_auth_basic, mod_authn_file, and mod_authz_user.
