Hi All No doubt this will be a question already asked many times but I am pulling what little hair out I have on this one. I've search archives for answered but many are unclear and a couple of posts have indicated that PlusNet really need to get their act together on the tutorials covering this. I am looking to .htaccess protect a folder on the CGI server.... what a night mare. Having read up this is how I understand the .htaccess fileshould look: AuthUserFile /files/home1/loginplus/path/.htpasswd AuthName "Please Log On" AuthType Basic require valid-user
Obvioulsy the folder I am protecting is called path and my username is loginplus When I access the folder Iam being promted for my username and password details but then the whole system fails. To answer the obvious questions: I have uploaded the .htaccess file to the path folder, changed MOD to 744 adn renamed it to '.htaccess' I have also included the .htpasswd in the path folder, also set permissions to 744 and renamed. When I try and login I ambeing told I am not providing the correct username and password (which I know are100% correct)... Can anyone please help?
