I can activate the plugin but when I go to the Options configuration panel I get this error.
Warning: Wrong parameter count for sha1() in /home/my-site/public_html/me/wp-content/plugins/askapache-password-protect/askapache-password-protect.php on line 622
htaccess support not found
Now, I have been messing with the .htaccess file because I have hotlinking disabled and I've been ip denying the spam bot that has found a hole somewhere in my wordpress and is uploading stuff that sends spam all over with added bounce backs in my email. So I'm not sure if this is the plugin or me.
