My guess is that the access.conf or httpd.conf should be like:

DocumentRoot /home/httpd/domains
AccessFileName .htaccess
AllowOverride All

Your setting is OK.
Just set the access mode your .htpasswd and .htaccess to 0600

All the security seeting in your home folder needs to be set as 0600, like .netrc, etc.
