.htaccess?
 
Why doesn't .htaccess rules work, when i example write this in it:

AuthUserFile /home/username/.htpasswd
AuthGroupFile /dev/null
AuthName "Private Area"
AuthType Basic
<Limit GET POST>

require valid-user
</Limit>

i just want to secure a folder by password, on apache2 [i just installed it, it works, but i can still see the folder, and it doesn't ask for password, i have .htpasswd in username/.htpasswd]


what am i missing?

thank you:S

Try it without the "<Limit GET POST>" etc.

All you should need is:

AuthUserFile /home/username/.htpasswd
AuthName "Private Area"
AuthType Basic
require valid-user

Please let us know if that helps.

A lot. There's more to password protection in Apache than simply
dropping a .htaccess file in a directory. This is way, way OT, btw,
but what you almost certainly need to do is to AllowOverrideAll for
your directory before Apache will allow it to have control over
access. It's all in the documentation.

.htaccess?
 
It's working!!:))
the httpd.conf file is empty, but the /etc/apache2/sites-available/default file had many-many configuration in it, i modified the:

<Directory /var/www/>

AllowOverrie All

.
.
.
</Directory>

and it works!!

thank you!!
