htaccess and AllowOverride
I know that .htaccess won't work when AllowOverride = None, but I'm just having trouble why one directory in my web server can use htaccess. I want to create a login prompt using htaccess and htpasswd.
sample 1 (this one is working):
this sample works and propely show and ask for user authentication.
path : /usr/local/apache/htdocs/mis/folder_1/
AuthType Basic AuthName "Restricted Access" AuthUserFile /usr/local/apache/htdocs/mis/folder_1/.htpasswd Require user testuser
so i created another folder under the mis and named it folder_2, copied the .htaccess and .htpasswd from folder_1 but every time i visit the site it does not show the login prompt.
any idea why this is happening?
ok nvm, i found out by browsing the .conf, the previous user assigned the directory.
<Directory "/usr/local/apache/htdocs/mis/folder_1"> Options Indexes FollowSymLinks AllowOverride AuthConfig Order allow,deny Allow from all </Directory>
