I logged in to my stuff today and I made someone a new FTP user like i’ve done many times before and now when I go to any directory I get a password prompt and I dunno the PW, but I don’t have any htaccess configured… so where is this frigging password coming from? i’ve tried as many combos as I can think of…
when you say ‘when I go to any directory I get a password prompt’ - is that through the browser?
Did you go into FTP and look for any htaccess files that way? (must have it set to show hidden files)
Does the new FTP user have access to those directories?
