    I have been trying to require authentication to a certain folder for my little website, and have been unable to. it just allows me access no problems :/

    in server configuration i have all three option checked, and none unchecked
    and no, i'm not connecting from, i'm connecting from
    ErrorDocument 404 /error404.html
    ErrorDocument 401 /error404.html
    authtype Basic
    authname FU
    authuserfile /opt/lsws/DEFAULT/html/alliancewars/.htpasswd
    order deny,allow
    deny from all
    allow from
    require valid-user
    satisfy any
    this is the folder i wish to require authentication, I used
     htpasswd -bcd .htpasswd $username $password 
    to create the .htpasswd file

    thnaks for the info, next time i try your product i will try using it without the satisfy/errordocument directives, i guess it defaults to satisfy any? or satisfy all?

    yes, i had all thre boxes checked

    Satisfy all.
    We will investigate this issue when we are available.

    Thank you.

    The link given in earlier reply refers to the option "Enable Context Access Control" under "Security" tab of virtual host configuration, it must be set to "Yes".

    Make sure the permission of .htaccess and .htpasswd are correct.

    Our test shows that .htaccess works pretty well. :)
