this is my first question to freeunix.
I've alreay setted up my homepage and it really worked simple and fast.
Now, I've wanted to protect one folder with .htaccess. I've written both files in a text editor and uploaded it to my new folder in my webpace.
When I now open the folder in my browser, I'm asked for my username and password. I type it in, but it takes no effect. But the usernae and password are correct.
What am I doing wrong, or isn't it possible to use .htaccess in general?
Thanks in forward.
