I've been trying for the past 2 days to get basic password protection on one of my directories working properly. Is there someone here that can help me? here is my .htaccess file (IN the directory I want to protect): Code: AuthUserFile /.htpasswd AuthGroupFile /dev/null AuthName "Paige's Blog" AuthType Basic <Limit GET POST> require valid-user </Limit> .htpasswd file (I have one located in the protected directory and one in my root diretory "/" because I was troubleshooting) Code: paige:cwMvd.rFGZOrI tre:cwmI7DZbs0Kd. I called RoadRunner tech support, and they swear that no one has a FULL PATH (i.e., /home/paihann/) on their servers. WTF! I know I need the full path for my .htpasswd file location, and im not sure if "/" is cutting it. The problem is that when I put in my username and password for the following site: http://home.cinci.rr.com/paihann/blog/randomsortedness.html It seems to not be doing anything at all - just returns me to login. I am using online Encryption tools. HELP!
