I'm trying to set up passwords and i did the tutorial, but for some reason it isn't accepting the password that i gave it.

computer: WinXP (Apache v2.0)

Name: fred
password: fred


.htaccess
AuthName "Realm Name"
AuthType Basic
AuthUserFile /.htpasswd
Allow From All
<Files **************.html>
require user fred
</Files>

.htpasswd
fred:24bsAXsTHvI3E

your setting for AuthUserFile is almost certainly wrong...you need to give it the path on the server (not the path as shown in your FTP account). if you're on a cpanel host, it'll be /home/user/.htpasswd...I dunno about other servers Smile you can also specify the path relative to the .htaccess file...so for example it could be ../.htpasswd

i'm running at test server off of my computer (using the Apache tutorial), but more importantly .htaccess and .htpasswd are in the same folder, so i'm pretty sure i've got the coding right there. Any other ideas on what it might be?

How did you generate the .htpasswd file? Windows apache doesnt use the same flavour of encryption as the *nix ver.

if they're in the same directory, it should be "AuthUserFile .htpasswd" (note the absence of a slash).

I figured out how to use htpasswd.exe, but that didn't help at all
all of the .htpasswd files i generated didn't fix the problem

i tried all of the fallowing encryptions: MD5, CRYPT and SHA
hell i even tryed plain text with no luck.

i'm thinking the problem is probably with my .htaccess rather than .htpasswd

by now i've figured it out on my own. But for anyone with a similar problem:

You're AuthUserFile
must start from your server's base directory, including the base directory itself (the part i was missing)

so if htdocs is your base directory then it should look like this:

AuthUserFile /htdocs/.htpasswd

Must be specific to your host as that's not usually the case (unless I'm going crazy, which wouldn't be surprising given how tired I am Very Happy)...

Hi all,

I am going out of my mind trying to get a .htaccess file working

1) can you use ../../ when specifying the authuserfile?

2) how do you find out your exact server path to use after the authuserfile? I am with Easily.co.uk

3) could someone attach an actual file so I can see the exact spacing and carriage returns (I think I read somewhere that it all has to be on one line)

4) I read in windows xp help file, that when using xp for ftp it defaults to ASCii. Is this true?

5) I have downloaded Apachie but am not sure how to enter the commands to generate the password files. Is there a step by step guide for wooden heads like myself?

6) Can I use the various password / username generators on the web as aposed to Apachie for Easly.co.uk?

Hope you can help,

Thanks in advance,

Dom..........

Cool - I will try to post something for you later tonight, including a few links I have found helpful concerning Apache Rewrites, Redirects and .htaccess.
