I installed Xampp 1.8.3 I then created a directory under document root called "/htdocs/simple" and added a .htaccess file to this folder, It works great I get a popup for a username
and password, I then copied over the same .htaccess to the "/htdocs/xampp" directory but I get no pop up for the user name and password. I have created various other directory's under /htdocs and added the .htaccess file with 100% success but it just won't work for the '/htdocs/xampp' directory which leads me to believe there is some config on this directory
that I am missing.
my httpd.conf is correctly configured with
Require all denied
I even tried changing httpd-xampp.conf to
any help with this would really be great, btw I do run lampp on my ubuntu box and never had this problem..
