I'm trying to password protect a file. I tried it by .htaccess and by the admin interface in litespeed. No dice If done by .htaccess, I get a 401 and no login box to authenticate to. Example: <Files admin.php> AuthName "Restricted" AuthType Basic AuthUserFile /home/usernamedirectory/.staccess Require valid-user </Files> If I use Auth Realm and Context for that specific vhost, authentication works. But instead of directing me to the admin.php file, it directs me to http://site.com/admin.php/, which shows the frontpage of the website. What am I doing wrong? Example: "Vhost Security Option Tab" Realm Name Restricted User DB Location /home/usernamedirectory/.staccess User DB Max Cache Size N/A User DB Cache Timeout (secs) N/A Group DB Location N/A Group DB Max Cache Size N/A Group DB Cache Timeout (secs) N/A "Vhost Context Option Tab" URI /admin.php Location /home/usernamedirectory/public_html Accessible Yes Enable Expires N/A Expires Default N/A Expires By Type N/A Extra Headers N/A MIME Type N/A Force MIME Type N/A Default MIME Type N/A Index Files N/A Auto Index N/A Allow Override N/A Realm Restricted Authentication Name N/A Required user user1, user2, user3, etc. Access Allowed N/A Access Denied N/A Authorizer N/A Add Default Charset Off Customized Default Charset N/A Enable Rewrite N/A Rewrite Inherit N/A Rewrite Base N/A Rewrite Rules N/A Apache Style configurations N/A Thanks!
