Date: 2015aug18 Product: Apache 2.4 Q. How can I setup Basic Authentication with Apache 2.4? A. Ensure .htaccess files are allowed - check your main .conf file:<Directory /var/www> AllowOverride AuthConfig <Directory>Put this in an .htaccess file:AuthType basic AuthUserFile /etc/httpd/conf/passwd AuthGroupFile /dev/null AuthName basic_test <LIMIT GET> require user myuser </LIMIT>Create the user file like this:htpasswd -c /etc/httpd/conf/passwd myuserAnd you'll be prompted for a password. Things to note: - The file user file can be anywhere. But its not safe to put in your webtree. - Can be in a .conf file rather than .htaccess
