I keep getting a 403 when I try to go to any of my password protected folder, one is done with .htaccess, and one is done in the httpd.conf, here's the content of my .htaccess:
AuthUserFile $file
AuthGroupFile /dev/null
AuthName Password
AuthType Basic

require valid-user
the folder is 750: nobody:users (apache runs as nobody, I plan on changing this to "apache&quot
the other one looks like this
<Directory "$name">
    Options FollowSymLinks
    AuthType Basic
    AuthName "If you're not me, get out"
    AuthUserFile "$passfile"
    Require valid-user
With same permissions.
I read somewhere that chmodding to 750 fixes this, but it didn't for me.
