make sure the path to .htapasswd is correct. to avoid confusion use absolute path. akso, have you restricted the page u r trying to access to a perticular group / user and using the other username/password combo.
the username and password are case sensitive.
r u sure u generated the correct password. of use the 4WH .htpasswd generator.

the AuthUserFile line is the problem, what you've got there is telling the server to look at the root of the filesystem for the file - where is .htpasswd on the filesystem, or in relation to .htaccess?

in that case you can probably just put:
Code:
AuthUserFile .htpasswd

or, failing that:
Code:
AuthUserFile ./.htpasswd

most free services disable things like .htaccess...usually if you want any useful features you have to pay

I happen to work for one (ValcatoHosting.com), also WebHostingTalk is a good place to go if you want to get a few good offers.

just out of interest, where are you hosted now?

hmm...on their home page they list full support for .htaccess, so you shouldn't need to switch to someone else. what exactly happens when you visit the password protected directory?
