How to set up .htaccess file on Ubuntu 14.04 LAMP
I've read all the posts on here as well as StackOverflow and even watched a few YouTube videos on how to set up an .htaccess file (I'm trying to password protect my directories) and none of them are working for me. Everything I do creates a 500 Internal Service Error message.
Do I need to change the 000-default.conf file or the apache2.conf file and what do I need to change? Is there anything else I need to do after that (besides setting up the .htaccess file and .htpasswd file)?
Can someone please provide a fresh step-by-step guide on how to set this up?
P.S. Sorry for the whining, I've been at this for 3 days and feel like I'm taking crazy pills!
