Problem with .htaccess & .htpasswd

Postby MalastiC » 02. November 2008 11:47

Good morning. I want to password protect the folder statistics XAMPP. I renamed and is now called stats.

My home directory is: opt/lampp/htdocs

I made a file: .htpasswd with this:

Code: Select all
user1:0.S9.iQIhYTWBY
user2:8vjUaROTxrEtzk


And i put in /opt/lampp/htdocs/stats

Now i made a file: .htaccess with this:

Code: Select all
AuthName "Restricted Area"
AuthType Basic
AuthUserFile /stats/.htpasswd
AuthGroupFile /dev/null
require valid-user


And i put in /opt/lampp/htdocs

The server say me "Error 500"

I'm doing something wrong insurance, but is not it.

A greeting,
MalastiC

Hi,

try using the full path for:

Code: Select all
AuthUserFile /stats/.htpasswd


Try something like:

Code: Select all
AuthUserFile /opt/lampp/htdocs/stats/.htpasswd


By the way. The .htaccess file has to reside in the directory you wish to protect.
The .htpasswd File may reside any where else.

Regards,
KriS

Fine.

Just another hint:
The server say me "Error 500"

In Apaches' error_log you can find the answer for your question.
