lsws 2.2, set to use httpd.conf directly. Everything else works nicely, except .htaccess from all virtual host. lsws error_log shows that .htaccess were detected, but it just refused to work. Something as simple as basic authentication such as: AuthType Basic AuthName "Restricted Area" AuthUserFile "/home/user123/www/admin/.htpasswds" require valid-user doesn't work and only results in 401 on the browser. Now I'm reverting back to apache just to wait til this is resolved. Hope someone can point me to the right direction. Thanks.
