It seems to be the case that the .htpasswd file must be created by DH and cannot be placed outside/above my web-accessible directory. Is this how it works?
I was trying to move my .htpasswd file to a directory outside my web accessible location but it never works. It asks repeatedly for the user/password. Once I change the .htaccess to point to the .htpasswd created by DH, it works. After being sure everything else is the same, it appears the only thing that’s different is the file’s group name. (I think I’m using the right terms.)
Thanks for your help,
