Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'm having trouble, letting a customer see a site that is locked with a simple Apache Basic Auth password file.

It works in every browser on Mac, Windows and in our network. Even the customer get's it working at home, but not in his office.

What could possibly go wrong here? Some Proxy caching something?

UPDATE: My config that has always worked in projects either in .htaccess or vhost config

AuthType Basic
AuthName "Customer - Project"
AuthUserFile /mnt/drbd0/www/staging.hostname.com/site/include/passwords
Require user staging.project

UPDATE2: And here's the relevant part from the error.log
