how do I configure htaccess files in EACH folder I want to protect ?
How do I configure apache2 so it will use htaccess files in each folder I want to protect ? Each folder represents a user and I want to configure each user separately and without having to modify the global httpd.conf file. I've placed the following into a .htaccess file in one folder, the name-1 folder, but I get the error message, "this web site does not require authentication" when I try to access the folder:
AuthType Basic AuthUserFile /srv/auth/name-1/.htpasswd AuthGroupFile /dev/null AuthName "Enter user name and password, for demo cameras, enter demo and 12345" Require valid-user
I've created the htpasswd file identified in line 2, and I've enabled htaccess in apache2.conf.
Note that I only want to protect certain folders, so some folders will be protected, but others, not. This all worked when I configured httpd.conf for each folder I wanted to protect, without using htaccess files, but stopped working when I switched to control via htaccess files in each folder.
