I am using the below .htaccess and .htpasswd file in folder wordoc I generated and I canít access the folder or page inside the folder. I tried several different .htpasswd and none work so far. The sign-up window opens when go to URL http://www.tech-insights.net/worddoc so I know my path is correct. I am using the economy Linux hosting on Godaddy hosting. All the info that is in listing is currently active on the Godaddy server.

I have spent the last 24 hours researching my problem and so far I couldnít resolve it.

I would really appreciate if someone could give a suggestion how I can solve this problem.

Thanks,
adubin Question
---------------------------------------------------------
.htaccess file Properties = 644

AuthUserFile /home/content/s/u/s/susan2/html/worddoc/.htpasswd/.htpasswd
AuthGroupFile /dev/null
AuthName "Password Protected Area"
AuthType Basic

<limit GET POST>
require valid-user
</limit>

.htpasswd file Properties = 644

worddoc:c35C7qqUSWlqo

I used .htpasswd tools to generate this code (http://www.htaccesstools.com/htpasswd-generator/)

I finally got the htaccess to work. I was doing some more research on the Internet and came across this website (http://www.vinoline.com/help/). I used their .htaccess code and their password code generator and everything started working. That is a big relief to me.

I think part of your problem was here:

Code:
AuthUserFile /home/content/s/u/s/susan2/html/worddoc/.htpasswd/.htpasswd


That means your .htpasswd file would have had to be in a directory called ".htpasswd".
