I have a directory that is protected: (extract from the vhost conf file)
<Directory "/var/www/protectedDir"> allow from all Options -Indexes AuthName "secure data" AuthType Basic require user jack AuthBasicProvider file AuthUserFile /home/tracker/protectedDir.sec <Files "mx7.html"> AddType application/x-httpd-php .html </Files> </Directory>
The protection works, asks for username and password when loaded in IE, Firefox, Safari and Opera, but using Chrome version 21.0.1180.60 m the security is bypassed and the user is sent directly to the protected content.
I have cleared the cache and all other browsing data items on Chrome and I don't have any password management extensions running.
I'm stumped. Don't know for sure if the problem is with my server conf or just something weird about my Chrome install. Any ideas?
