Security if .htaccess don't work..
Hi, I've set up the .htaccess/.htpasswd files, but it don't seem to work. I'm suspecting that they have some weird settings in the conf of the apache server where I've got my account, but I havent got any answers yet.
So - can anyone tip me on what to do for security until I get .htaccess working?
I tried chmod'ing the whole admin directory - what a bummer...I hope not too many people were locked out too long...
Can I just chmod the admin.cgi to prevent any misuse?

Oh - btw - my .htaccess file looks like this:

AuthUserFile /[path is correct, I know it]
AuthGroupFile /dev/null
AuthName ByPassword
AuthType Basic
<Limit GET POST>
require user Macro
</Limit>

Thanks in advance.
