Re: Basic authentication using .htaccess file problem SOLVED

If you install mod_auth_mysql the default auth method for apache will be

Yep, figured that out. How that happened, I don't know, since it didn't happen on both machines. Anyway...

I place this inside my DocumentRoot <Directory "blah"> to disable mysql
auth and allow users to turn it on if they need it:

   AuthMySQLEnable off

Even better as someone else privately emailed me: I checked the auth_mysql.conf file in the httpd/conf.d directory. For some reason, it was uncommenetd, so that was the authentication. Commented it out, restarted httpd, and voila, it worked! Thanks Tim, Norman, and an anonymous user at innovate.net et al for pointing me to the right direction!
