[root@*************** var]#  ../etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd restart
Stopping httpd:                                            [  OK  ]
Starting httpd: Syntax error on line 1088 of /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf:
AuthName not allowed here
                                                           [FAILED]

All that parameters are available only under Directory or Location directive: So your conf should be
<Location /protected/part/of/your/server>
AuthName "Apache"
AuthType Basic
AuthUserFile /usr/local/nagios/etc/htpasswd.users
require valid-user
</Location>

where protected /part/of/your/server should be replaced by url which are yu trying to protect
