  • I’m having this same problem … the issue only after I added an ill-fated plugin called user photo … now every time I try to access my user page it has me log in – authentication required for “WP-Files” a page that doesn’t exist!
    Even after deleting the plugin the glitch remains .. and is driving me insane. Any help I will be extremely grateful!

    Hi!

    Check for two files inside wp-content/uploads, called:

    .htpasswd
    .htaccess

    To solve the problem, delete or edit them. In my installation, these files were created by a plugin.

    Hi!
    I was facing the same problem, I renamed (& then later deleted) these
    .htpasswd & .htaccess inside wp-content/uploads as said by heliocorreia and it worked for me!

    thanks heliocorreia.

    Had the same problem, this fixed it, thanks a lot!
