The password can't be encrypted if you are running xampp on windows. Everything else looks fine though. Try this
Code:AuthName "Section Name" AuthType Basic AuthUserFile C:/xampp/password/.htpasswd Require valid-user Options -Indexes DirectoryIndex index2.php

I've done this in windows, but missed the tutorial link. Anyway I think the steps are as follows.
0)Backup your xampplite\apache\conf\httpd.conf
1) Add the below portion in to this
under a lineCode:AccessFileName .htaccess <Directory "/xampplite/htdocs/myfolder/admin"> AllowOverride All Options None Order deny,allow </Directory>
2) Take command promt and run
this will create a .htpasswd file in your working directory.Code:xampplite\apache\bin\htpasswd.exe -c .htpasswd username
3)Copy this file to htdocs/myfolder/admin
4)then create a .htaccess file in your folder to be protected having something like
(Change folder name to fit to your system)Code:AuthUserFile C:/xampplite/htdocs/myfolder/admin/.htpasswd AuthName "This is protected area" AuthType Basic <Limit GET POST> require valid-user </Limit>

Well done Aero, that worked nicely, although I'm not sure why it made a difference.
Also thanks to abduraooft where your post could really help me in the future.
