AWstat and Passwords

I tried to setup a .htaccess file in /aw as shown in the awstats docs but all I get is a 404. I also tried using panel to password protect either /aw or /aw/cgi-bin but I get the same thing.

I know that the url is pretty obscure to get to the stats so I’m not too worried but why the heck won’t the passwords protection work?

currently my awstats generates static pages in my domain folder so i just set a password in there.

were you able to use cgi for dynamic pages? you mind helping me out with that, and maybe we can try to do the password thing out together when i get to that stage lol.
