Hi, I would really like to be able to use this plugin. I already have my wp-admin folder password protected by .htaccess, but this plugin seems to offer a whole lot more.
This is my third attempt today, every time it seems to break my site. The last attempt I commented out the details in the htaccess file in wp-admin, as i suspected that was causing the "too may redirects" error I was seeing. No luck.
I'm not sure I am setting it up correctly- I can't select the radio options for BASIC or DIGEST, and I cannot choose between the three options of (is that) Hashing the password- the MD5, SHA1 and other options.
It says my server won't allow Digest, if that is important here.
At the bottom in red it advises me that I need to activate the wp-admin or wp-login (I THINK) option to allow me to save the password. If I activate it, site is broken, but it won't let me pick a password if it is not activated!?!.
Additionally it complains that htpasswd3a (or whatever it is called) could not be created, which it was able to do during the install prechecks. I have deleted that file and tried again, without luck, also tried to make an empty one without luck. Tried to change to storage location to home/user/.htpasswds/.htpasswd3a without luck also.
/user has 711 attributes
/user/public_html is 755
/user/.htpasswds is 750
the fake blank file I made was 644.
If anyone has a suggestion, I would love to hear it,
