I'd like to htaccess password protect a file within the cgi-bin folder
The file has been generated by Virtualmin like so:
AuthUserFile /var/www/virtual/mydomain.com/cgi-bin/.htpasswd AuthType Basic AuthName "Statistics" require valid-user
Although I got only "require valid-user" defined it brings up this error in the log file:
[Sun Nov 25 02:41:08 2007] [error] [client 220.127.116.11] GROUP: mydomain.com not in required group(s).
which makes no sense at all, does it?
While googling I found this related posting here: http://www.unixadmintalk.com/f44/apache-2-2-error-not-required-group-s-2...
and while looking at the enabled apache modules I found
among others, too. Do I need to disable any of those modules to get this working?
I actually only want to protect the awstats.pl file within the cgi-bin folder with the <files> directive, but if not even the whole folder can be protected I can't do that either.
Any pointers would be very much appreciated.
P.S. I've created various password protected folders on the server, so this is not a general problem, but maybe specific to the cgi-bin folder.
