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

    .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?
