.htaccess

Recommended Posts

Hello, htacess anyone? :P

 

I am having a bit of problem with the htaccess basic authentication. I have follow a demo here http://www.he.net/faq/tutorials/htaccess/demo.html

 

For the purpose of verifying a working htaccess, I have copy all files word for word like follow:

 

.htpasswd (user: john, pass: orange, user: sheri, pass: apple)

===============

john:zOSE9NzIxzoYo

sheri:bcrFMwAnWVM2A

===============

 

.htaccess

===============

AuthUserFile /www/.htpasswd

AuthName jdoe_goodstuff

AuthType Basic

<Limit GET>

require valid-user

</Limit>

===============

 

I have:

 

1. Tested this exact configuration on a live server, changing only the path of the .htpasswd to the server path -- It did works

 

2. Tried to adapt this to the uniform server -- Did not work

3. Debugged by placing htpassword everywhere I could think of, thinking that the path to the pass word file may be the problem -- Did not work

 

Thanks in advance for any help.

Try

AuthUserFile W:\www\.htpasswd
AuthName jdoe_goodstuff
AuthType Basic
<Limit GET>
require valid-user
</Limit>

 

And make sure: W:\www\.htpasswd is valid :P

or just:

 

AuthUserFile .htpasswd

Oh dear, just found it :)

 

1. The path to htpasswd file is correct taking the form of /www/docs/.htpasswd depending on where you want to place the .htpasswd

 

2. :P :) :D Surprise surprise, the password file is NOT encrypted. That is it would be, password in clear text.

===============

john:orange

sheri:apple

===============

and thanks to Kevin for giving a hand :-)

Don't ask me.... lol...

 

I always wondered why also but it really does not matter.. 3.3 has a more secured .htpasswd folder for .htpasswd files.

How about clearing all that anime from your brain buffer before speaking?

You wouldn't like it if it overflows :) :)

You can find all the examples you need here. Keep an eye out for those W:\htpasswd\ folders.

 

lol.... NO :)

 

We now have a /htpasswd/ folder for htpasswd files... :P

We're just moving all the .htpasswd files from W:\www\\ to W:\htpasswd\\, it's that simple :lol:

 

Anyway, I found this in my httpd.conf:

#
# The following lines prevent .htaccess and .htpasswd files from being 
# viewed by Web clients. 
#
<Files ~ "^\.ht">
   Order allow,deny
   Deny from all
</Files>

Hmmm.. so do you care to explain why we need that htpasswd folder again, Olajide?

To make up for potential Apache bugs? :P
