I could do with some help on .htaccess
I am new to xampp. I am trying to set up a test .htaccess for the htdocs/xampp directory.
xampp is installed at C:/xampp and I have placed a test .htaccess page in C:/xampp/htdocs/xampp with for the time being only the .htpasswd file in the same directory.
when i view my webpage at bla bla bla/xampp/index.php I get up the .htaccess login window. when I enter the username and password that was generated using .htaccess password generator it will not let me in.
If I delete the password and leave the username from .htpasswd it will let me in using just a username.
Am I missing something!!
Should I be changing something in the apache config file, if so what.
Any help appreciated
