  • Could it be your public_html directory is password protected?

    I don’t know. What would I need to do to fix that? Sorry, but I’m a dummy when it comes to all this stuff.

    By the way, here’s the message Safari gives me on the login box if it helps:
    “To view this page, you must log in to this area on http://www.lifeinvagabondia.com.:80:
    User Backups
    Your password will be sent unencrypted.”

    Thank you for the response!

    I just clicked on your link at the top and I was not ask for a password. Firefox 3.6 – A posting on Tibet and some video –

    yeah, I think I just fixed it right after I posted that. I opened the .htaccess file in Text Edit and just looked at what was there. The 4th line down said “require valid-user” I just deleted that line and saved the file and uploaded it back into my root folder, deleting the old .htaccess file. And now it doesn’t ask for a password.

    Thanks for your help!
