Guess you've forgot the "Satisfy" directive.


  Oops!, I have forgot to restart apache ;)

  My ignorance due to non-stop GNU/Linux.

Hi,

I have some problems with the user authentication. I have added this
to the httpd.conf (apache-1.3) file.

<Directory /usr/lib/cgi-bin/downloader/>
        AuthType Basic
        AuthName "Restricted area"
        AuthUserFile /etc/apache/passwd/passwords
        Require user downloader
</Directory>

But on accessing this
http://cs.annauniv.edu/cgi-bin/downloader/index.py

location, it doesn't ask for username/password.  Apache error log was
clean.  What might have gone wrong.
Before that I have created the password file using `htpasswd`.  I
followed everthing given the documentation.
Here is my httpd.conf file
