[dokuwiki] .htpasswd

hi all,

i'd like to use .htaccess to password protect a dokuwiki with

i've added the necessary .htaccess lines:

AuthName "Restricted Area"
AuthType Basic
AuthUserFile /usr/home/location_of_dokuwiki_password/.htpasswd
AuthGroupFile /dev/null
require valid-user

to the top of the default .htaccess (in the root of the
dokuwiki installation), which only contained these active

<Files ~ "^[\._]ht">
    Order allow,deny
    Deny from all
    Satisfy All

is there anything i need to be concerned about wrt dokuwiki
functioning properly now that i've manually edited it's root
.htaccess file?

everything seems to work fine.  i'm asking to avoid being
surprised by a problem that i might not have immediately
