.htaccess points to multiple files


John Michael Soileau of realtimescripts.com says in a comment that :

"sometimes you can simply have your .htaccess file point to each(a multiple of) .htpasswd file.

I have tried various ways.

Anyone know the correct syntax for this

Apology,

it seems that the 2nd AuthUserFile (or maybe the last in the list) will be used.  Duh!.

I have tried the following on my Apache (1.3.24 on Win2k), and it works fine, and I belive it should not be much different on Unix platform.

My config.

--httpd.conf
    <Directory "C:/Program Files/Apache Group/Apache/htdocs/test">
        AllowOverride AuthConfig
        Order allow,deny
        Allow from all
    </Directory>
-------------
--.htaccess
AuthType Basic
AuthName " "
AuthUserFile "c:\program files\apache group\apache\htdocs\test\.htpasswd"
AuthUserFile "c:\program files\apache group\apache\htdocs\test\.htpasswd1"
AuthAuthoritative     on
Require valid-user
--------------------

Please, if it still does not work, look at the error_log (or error.log on Windows Apache).  You might get some hint there.  Or you can post it here, and we might be able to help.

cheers.

mstone,

Could you post the link where John Michael points that statement out.

I doesn't seems to be able to figure out on how to use multiple .htaccess file anyway.  I knew you can have different .htaccess (which each one of them are using different refer to a different userfile), but not one .htaccess using multiple userfile.
