Thanks for asking there, actually the problem*has
been*solved, I deleted the passwords
dir and chmoded 777 the passwd dir
and the unsername and password were created
by htpasswd.*
*
chmod to 777
is never*a good thing.* I believe the file needs to be owned by
root*with group ownership to apache at 640.* There are also
requirements on the .htaccess file as well.
*
At one time,
and it may still be, there was an example in*one of the /etc/httpd
directories*using mysql to*do
the authentication rather than apache.* It might be a little more secure
but not by*much if you're not using
SSL.
