.htaccess not working

Msg#: 4550725 posted 9:20 pm on Mar 3, 2013 (gmt 0)


Im back again with yet another issue.

I have created a simple .htaccess file in the root as detailed below:


The contents are as follows:

AuthUserFile /var/access/.htpasswd
AuthName "Please Log In"
AuthType Basic

<files ".htaccess">
order allow,deny
deny from all

My .htpasswd is located in /var/access/.htpassword and that has the automated lines added when you issue the htpasswd -c command in linux.

For some unknown reason to me the file is not block access to that directory and I have no idea why?

All of the sub directories are still visible too.

Any ideas?
