Hi,

I want to create a own .htaccess file and .htpasswd file. But I have one problem. What's the path for the .htacceess file to find the .htpasswd file?

This is what I have tried:

Code:
AuthType Basic
AuthName "SooS 't Harde administratie"
AuthUserfile "./home/users/sootha10/www/.htpasswd"
Require valid-user


and this:

Code:
AuthType Basic
AuthName "SooS 't Harde administratie"
AuthUserfile "./home/www/sootha10.freehostia.com/.htpasswd"
Require valid-user


But nothing works. Who knows the path???

Thank u, Maurits

Try protecting your directories using Password Protected Areas section in your Account's Control Panel. Note that if you are trying to password protect a folder, there should not be an .htaccess file in it.

I know this topic is pretty old, I need assistance with finding the correct path as well...

.htaccess contains the following lines

AuthName "Restricted Area"
AuthType Basic
AuthUserFile ./home/www/workathometoday.freehostia.com/.htpasswd
AuthGroupFile /dev/null
require valid-user

.htpasswd contains the following lines
testusername:password

I uploaded both files .htaccess and .htpasswd to the directory of /home/www/workathometoday.freehostia.com, when I open http://workathometoday.freehostia.com it prompts for login username n pass. Have entered them in, unable to login in?

It appears my .htaccess file can't find the path to the .htpasswd

Anyone help please.

Wae.

Looking forward to hearing from you.
