Apache .htaccess related errors

If you are using .htaccess files in order to password protect directories on your server, you may have a bit of a headache setting it up, due to a few configuration details that people tend to forget.

Generally apache has a very straightforward procedure in order to setup and maintain a HTTP server, but it also has many features causing some details to end up hidden within the huge manual files.

Like the following one:

In order to setup password protection with .htaccess files, the first thing you have to do is to set up properly Allow Override in the main config file.

Other than that, be sure that the directory where the .htpasswd file is located, is executable by everyone - (rwxr-xr-x or 755) is what mine looks like.

Always remember, that if apache is giving you a hard time, the first thing you should do, is to take a look at the /var/log/apache/error_log before hitting your head against the wall and start changing conf files.

The last one is also a NOTE-TO-SELF.
