I have a directory on my Cherokee webserver that I am trying to password protect so that when I try to enter it from a web browser, I get a pop up demanding username and password. Needless to say I am getting stuck.
I have created the .htaccess file with:
AuthUserFile /srv/http/protected AuthGroupFile /dev/null AuthName "Protected Stuff" AuthType Basic Require valid-user
And I used the apache-tools' htpasswd command:
htpasswd -c .htpasswd wdkrnls
I configured Cherokee with a behavior rule on the /protected directory which requires htpasswd authentication and restarted. I get
Error 405 Method Not Allowed whenever I navigate there in a directory.
What more do I need to do? Thanks for your help.
