Synopsis: Continuing problems with root directories of other drives

Richard,

I just tried this with Apache 1.3.5-dev 
(a tarball from 1/27/99) on NT 4.0 SP3.
(this setup is basically what you did
in your last attempt)

Alias /croot/ c:/

<Directory "c:/">
AuthUserFile "userauth.uaf"
AuthType Basic
AuthName RestrictedInformation
require user foo
</Directory>


And this worked for me.  Maybe you can try this
again with Apache 1.3.4?

Couple of things to watch for:
-Browsers (like IE) may add a trailing '/' to 
your URL, so that is the reason the Alias needs the
trailing '/'
-Make sure you haven't already entered the userid and
password for another restricted area, otherwise the
browser caches that info and will not ask you again, and
it may appear as though you got to the index without
authorization.

Let us know! 

Thanks for using Apache.
