    Hi, I have just installed this plugin and put the 2 .htaccess files in the relevant directories and I am getting a popup window for the username and password but after entering it I am getting the following error message ??

    Can anybody point me in the right direction??

    Cheers

    "Internal Server Error

    The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

    Please contact the server administrator, and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

    More information about this error may be available in the server error log.

    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

    I have created a .htpasswd file and changed the path in the .htaccess to /passwords/.htpasswd and created a directory in the root of my domain name called passwords . I have also changed the require user from dwc to myusername, wil this effect it at all ?

    Cheers

    I also have this at the start of the .htaccess file in root (as I use perm links)
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    </IfModule>
