AccessFileName .htaccess # # The following lines prevent .htaccess and .htpasswd files from being # viewed by Web clients. # <Files ~ "^\.ht"> Order allow,deny Deny from all </Files>
AuthUserFile c:/www/.htpasswd AuthName "Password Protected" AuthType basic <Files .htaccess> order allow,deny deny from all </Files> <Files .htpasswd> order allow,deny deny from all </Files>
.htpasswd (assume this one is valid, i used the htpasswd utility that comes with apache to generate it.
the site is infact located in c:\www\ and for the time being, both files are in this directory.
I can't for the life of me get a password prompt to appear
What am i doing wrong?
