I'm running apache 2.4.10 on Linux Slackware64 14.1 kernel 3.10.17.
This .htaccess file works:
Require user joe
This one does not:
Internal Server Error
The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.
Why? Apache docs indicates 'valid-user' "will allow anyone in that is listed in the password file, and who correctly enters their password." http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/howto/auth.html
. And, 'valid-user' appears to be permitted in .htaccess files: http://weavervsworld.com/docs/other/passprotect.html
What am I doing wrong?
