I have created a password protected directory with Cpanel, yet once I have added the required code to .htaccess it won't authorize?

Seems to be working yet it won't authorize with the password I created...

have used this code... AuthType Basic AuthName "Restricted Files" AuthUserFile xx/passwd/ Require valid-user – palbakulich Mar 12 '10 at 3:46
AuthUserFile xx/passwd is definitely pointing to a file – palbakulich Mar 12 '10 at 6:30
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about working with a service provider's management interface, such as cPanel. – HopelessN00b Jan 13 '15 at 21:02
AuthUserFile xx/passwd/

Looks like that's pointing to a directory and not a file. Did you actually create the htpasswd file? If so, AuthUserFile should be pointing to that.
