http://www.4webhelp.net/tutorials/misc/htaccess.php

You guys probably have had questions to this before but I looked over the forum for a little while and could not find anything so I though it would be ok for me to post a question.

I followed the tutorial and I had thought that I had did it correctly however when I try to sign in I enter the correct username and password however it will not allow me to enter.

The files I made look like the following:

.htpasswd:

guest1:16MFvXdVVHM3c
guest2:27HVMSXZxJ.iM
guest3:78RwNWlPc5Cog

.htaccess:

AuthName "Realm name"
AuthType Basic
AuthUserFile /var/www/html/.htpasswd
require valid-user

Basically when I enter the information into the password box that pops up when I go to my site it doesnt do anything after I press "ok." So im guessing its not matching my password or cannot find the password file although im not sure.

Please any help would be wonderful.

My current host is http://www.smoovenet.com/

Thanks!

Try putting this in your .htaccess file

AuthUserFile /var/www/html/.htpasswd
AuthName "Realm name"
AuthType Basic
<Limit GET POST>
require valid-user
</Limit>

I am having the same problem even when I tried what was suggested in the reply. The box pops up to put in user name and password but after I type it, the box just reappears without giving me access to the file.

I have tried everything I can think of, my files look like this:

.htaccess

AuthName "Realm name"
AuthType Basic
AuthUserFile /www/.htpasswd
<Limit GET POST>
require valid-user
</Limit>

.htpasswd
suka:76AiOf/Jz1226

Please can anyone help, greatly appreciated

That's not the path to your .htpasswd file. Do you have PHP installed? If so, use this script to find out the path to the www directory:

I can't believe there's a copyright notice on that script - it's one line of code Laughing

It's a standard template for all our scripts, as I've already stated Smile
