Hey all,

I want a directory to be password protected on my website. I uploaded a .htaccess file and .htpasswd file in the directory that I want protected. I am using a Linux Shared Hosting Account.

This is the code I have for .htaccess

AuthUserFile /home/content/66/10805966/html/.htpasswd
AuthGroupFile /dev/null
AuthName "EnterPassword"
AuthType Basic

require valid-user

I know I have the absolute path correct. Whenever I delete this .htaccess file, the directory can be accessed but when I upload the .htaccess file, the directory itself "cannot be found" when I try to go to it on my browser.

My .htpasswd file is uploaded in the same directory. Below is what I have in that file:

test:$apr1$I6n8.6oO$H8jqsfOB/67OyZttkh…

Does anyone know what is wrong? How can I fix this problem?

Thanks in advance!
