[basic package] .htaccess will redirect to
« on: April 09, 2011, 01:08:22 AM »

I want to setup my wedding website with a password to protect our photos from the angry outside world. I have setup a .htaccess file with a .htpasswd file. The locations for both are /public_html/.htaccess and /.htpasswd, both files are set to ASCII with permissions 755.

The following is the content of my .htaccess file.
Code: [Select]
AuthName "Restricted Area"
AuthType Basic
AuthUserFile /.htpasswd
AuthGroupFile /dev/null
require valid-user

I have used the password generator at . Everytime I put in my login details I get transferred to instead of my own website. I also realized that even when I don't have a password file this happens.

Would anyone have an idea of what is wrong here?
