Htaccess not working properly


I’m not sure what has changed in the last couple of months, but instead of prompting me for a username/password when I try to access a protected folder I get a 404 error from my blog. - for an example

As soon as I delete the access and passwd files the directory is displayed properly.

Any ideas?


sounds to me like it is possible that you might have another .htaccess file (maybe with re-write rules" lurking somewhere up path. It’s easy enough to do if you are not paying close attention with FTP or if you borked a “cp” command while in the shell. :wink:



Bing! That was it…WP was kind enough to drop an .htaccess file for me.

Thanks a bunch!


Good Deal … I’m glad you got it sorted out! :slight_smile:
