[Plugin: AskApache Password Protect] Plugin can’t/won’t create/write to .htpasswd(a3) file …

  • I’ve tried this about a dozen times, going through setup I point it at where I want the file, in multiple places, all writable, readable, everything … and on first attempt to create the file I get this error:

    ERROR: Please make /var/www/<path>/<to>/.htpasswda3 writable and readable

    Then when I create the file myself, and set perms to 777 I get:

    ERROR: Failed to create /var/www/<path>/<to>/.htpasswda3

    I’m baffled. What’s going on here?
