liquidengineerHello
I've got a question about .htaccess and .htpasswd files
is this the place to ask?
Innatechit's *a* place to ask. :)
It's been slow in here today, tho.
liquidengineerI'm hitting a wall
I'm trying to password protect a directory
Innatechmmhmm...
liquidengineerI get the password prompt fine, but it won't accept my password
it just keeps giving the password prompt over and over again, as if the password is invalid
Innatechhave you reset the password to make sure it's right?
liquidengineerYes.
InnatechHave you checked Apache's logs?
liquidengineerI'm using this to generate my password hash, btw; http://www.kxs.net/support/htaccess_pw.html
I'm not sure I have access to the apache logs...I'm on a shared hosting plan at dreamost
dreamhost
Innatechooh....
call em and bug em then. ;P
or email 'em. It could be something with how their servers are configured.
liquidengineerwait
I think I found the log directory
there are four folders
access.log analog error.log hits html
is that it?
Innatechmmhmm. You want to inspect access.log and error.log
liquidengineerokay, three folders and two files
I'm sleepy. :)
looking now
Okay
here we go
[Fri Apr 06 19:07:48 2007] [error] [client 76.184.104.248] (2)No such file or directory: Could not open password file: /dh/apache2/apache2-fritz/home/.ella/ceohpdev/ceohpdev.theliquidengineer.org/testbed/.htpasswd
Innatechyup. That would be a problem.
check the perms and owner, etc.
liquidengineerwhat should the permissions be?
InnatechI'm not sure offhand.
Let me see if my ancient webmaster nutshell guide has the correct settings....
liquidengineerah
here we go
Innatechgot it?
liquidengineerthe dreamhost tutorial says to chmod things to 644
