hi all I'm trying to make password access protection to virtual host by name  in the .htaccess when I refer to this line
AuthUserFile      /etc/httpd/conf/ss-auth
authentication works just fine
but when I refer to this line instead
AuthUserFile      /home/hatem/cc/ss-auth
it fails to make authorization
and in the /var/log/httpd/error_log I find a message that say
[Mon Jul 30 17:22:36 2007] [error] [client] access to /xampp/ failed, reason: verification of user id 'gamal' not configured
first question is how can I solve that issue

second question is :
I have apache installed with fedora 6 and I installed xampp 1.6 and xampp starts by default now I turned it off and I started the original apache using this command :
# system-config-services
there is strange thing that happens it makes authentication then when it fails as described it refere the browser to
which is the protected directory of the admin interface of xampp that I've just turned it of I tryed
service httpd restart
service httpd reload
but no good
can you please help me in that too?
Best Regards
