I am having problems trying to get the authentication straightened out for my site. I have created very basic .htaccess, .htpasswd files and used the password encryption tool (htpassword.cgi) that is provided by my ISP and am still can not get authentication. After trying many iterations here is where I'm at:
AuthUserFile <full path>.htpasswd
require user pumpkin
Is there anything wrong here? If not, what questions might I ask my ISP to help resolve this issue? It all seems very straight forward, but I have not been able to get it to work.
