Hello experts
I forgot the password from a .htaccess protected directory
so I enter this directory through SSH
/home/ovh/www/phpMyAdmin
and... there is NO .htaccess file inside !
I am sure that this is the good directory since I do analyze apache log

[Thu Dec 24 18:11:44 2009] [info] Executing "/home/ovh/www/phpMyAdmin/index.php" as UID 500, GID 500
HOW THIS CAN BE POSSIBLE ?

.htaccess is a hidden file, so you need to use a command that displays/lists hidden files, like:

ls -A
ls -a

Did you do that?
