    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!

    Try without the limit and group file, like so -

    It would be nice if they gave you access to the Apache error log.

    err, that's a HOME cable modem page... I don't even know that they have .htaccess files enabled for you. What do you have? 2MB? Why not get a real host? You can probably find a free host that does what you need.
