Darwin and .htaccess - Mac Applications & Software

Hello Group, I tried to password protect a directory on my 'Darwin' Web server. But I am never prompted to login to access the protected directory. This same .htaccess file and .htpasswd works fine on my 'linux' webserver. Why is it so? both runs on Apache Webserver, still why is it not wokring on Darvin? #___________ sample __________ AuthType Basic AuthName "thedifferenZ area" AuthUserFile /Library/WebServer/CGI-Executables/.htpasswd require valid-user #___________end sample___________ ..htaccess is for Apache in general, right? or is dependent on OS? TIA Vijoy Varghese....

    Default Darwin and .htaccess

    Hello Group,

    I tried to password protect a directory on my 'Darwin' Web server. But
    I am never prompted to login to access the protected directory. This
    same .htaccess file and .htpasswd works fine on my 'linux' webserver.
    Why is it so? both runs on Apache Webserver, still why is it not
    wokring on Darvin?

    #___________ sample __________

    AuthType Basic
    AuthName "thedifferenZ area"
    AuthUserFile /Library/WebServer/CGI-Executables/.htpasswd

    require valid-user

    #___________end sample___________

    ..htaccess is for Apache in general, right? or is dependent on OS?

    TIA

    Check the global httpd.conf.

    By default, it comes with this:

    <Directory />
    Options FollowSymLinks
    AllowOverride None
    </Directory>

    That tells it not to allow users to override global settings
    with .htaccess files in their directories.

    This isn't really a mac question, though.
    You'll probably do better in one of the comp.infosystems.www.servers
    groups.

    An optimist says the glass is half full.
