Hi folks,

I'm trying to password protect a directory in /var/www/passwordthisone

I've dropped this .htaccess file into passwordthisone

AuthUserFile /home/user/.htpasswd
AuthGroupFile /dev/null
AuthName "Private Area"
AuthType Basic
<Limit GET POST>
require valid-user

and i've set a password for user, but it still seems to let anyone in  
without asking for the password, what am I doing wrong?


Eagles may soar high, but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines.
