This is driving me nuts. I wanted to have a directory password proetected. So I set up .htaccess in that directory, and pointed to a .htpasswd on a directory above it. I got the apssword proetection to work, once I did chmod 744 to both of these files. It was working fine. Then a couple of hours later, I tried it again, and it no longer worked. So I figured, naturally, I must not ahve remembered the password right. So I changed the password. Still no luck. I erased the .htpasswd file and recreated it - no luck.
Here is what the .htaccess file looks like (it is in /home/bluex/public_html/access/today/ ):
<Limit GET POST>
require user daily
In the directory: /home/bluex/public_html/access/
I have the file .htpasswd and it contians a record showing "user" and an ecrypted password.
But when I enter user "daily" and the password, I am denied access. Why might that be?
