I am trying to setup a simple .htaccess/.htpasswd authentication for a file. I am getting an Internal Server error when I upload the files to my actual website, so I thought I'd try it on XAMPP. I get the same error. The error occurs after the username/password box appears and I hit OK. Whether the username/password is correct or incorrect doesn't matter. Here's my .htaccess:
and my .htpasswd:
.htaccess, .htpasswd, and students.txt are all in my \xampp\htdocs folder.
"LoadModule rewrite_module modules/mod_rewrite.so" is enabled...I read that not enabling it is a common problem.
Here is my actual error:
The server encountered an internal error and was unable to complete your request. Either the server is overloaded or there was an error in a CGI script.
If you think this is a server error, please contact the webmaster.

I'm at a loss right now, so any help would be great!
