keep it simple and put your directory container inside the virtualhost
block

Check you have the authconfig option? in your directory container add in
AllowOverride AuthConfig        ... its possible your global config 
parameters are denying this. Also whislt your testing do something like
echo "it works" >  /var/www/html/dev/index.html its not your problem but
will help verify you can read the dir once you do login.

I read usenet and lists in pine. But m$ outlook, thunderbird and gmail
often use html span/whatever for quotes, makes it hard to tell who said
what, so I dont try. If I ignore you, thats why! Use a compliant mailer.
