OK so I have created an htaccess file like this:
require user publishers
and a htpasswd file like this
The password has been obtained from the encrypter site (cant recall the domain name but it may be wrong). If I hit cancel, I get the 401 page but it shows the name of the file I was refused access to and that filename is correct.
Both files are in the folder that is to be password protected and I have checked with the ISP who tell me there are no issues with their set up to prevent the thing working.
when the dialogue box appears for entering the username and password, it just re-appears after clicking OK. I can't get access to the content of that folder.
Can anyone tell me why (ie what I'm doing wrong)?
