A website I work with was recently migrated to dreamhost. I have been using mysqldumper for the past 2.5 years to back up the db every night, and also for restores, creating test boards, and the like.
I installed mysqldumper on dreamhost but am having a problem with directory protection. When I create directory protection for mysqldumper and then navigate to it by url, I see Page Not Found. When I go into the mysqldumper folder by ftp and rename .htaccess and .htpasswd, and then naviagate to it by url, it functions normally.
I tried removing the .htaccess and .htpasswd created by mysqldumper and creating directory protection through htaccess/webDAV instead, but I still get Page Not Found when I navigate to it. When I go into the mysqldumper folder and rename the .htaccess created by dreamhost, then I can use mysqldumper.
It seems that any .htaccess on dreamhost makes mysqldumper inaccessible.
What is the solution?
