I have a .htaccess file in the members area of my site.  It points to my /etc/http/mysite/users file for authentication.  It has always worked in the past.  Last week I installed RHLinux7.1 and for some reason, when going to the members area, the .htaccess file is being totally ignored.  It never prompts for a username/password.  Anyone know any reason this is happening?  Has anything changed in Apache for RHLinux7.1?

Check your /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf and make sure that you have

AccessFileName .htaccess

and if the dir that needs for authentication is /home/user1/public_html, make sure this is in httpd.conf also.

<Directory "/home/user1/public_html">
    AllowOverride AuthConfig
    (other options you might have here)
</Directory>
