I set apache with directory authentication. But whenever I access the folder which provide access authentication, the window which ask for username and password indeed pop-up [seems ready to accept authentication] but whenever I login using the accounts which I previously made / allowed
to access my private directory It just won't make the user pass.
I invoked the following to see if indeed the users were made and it provides:
# /usr/sbin/dbmmanage /etc/httpd/dbmpasswd view
Also, here's my http.conf entries
AuthName "Restricted Area"
require valid-user user1 user2
I provided a chmod 640 access permission and chown root.www on the /etc/httpd/dbmpasswd file. But nothing seem to give good news.
Httpd restart produce no error. HTTP access.log and error.log likewise did not give any errors.
It seems that the entries "AuthDBMUserFile /etc/httpd/dbmpasswd" was not giving any effect even if I restarted the http service.
I'm stuck for so many weeks now figuring-out the problem. Hope you expert out there can contribute a solution to my BIG PROBLEM.
A million 10ks in advance.
