Apache AllowOverride AuthConfig Directive

You can control access to directories on an Apache webserver by placing .htaccess files in those directories and creating .htpasswd files containing userids and passwords required to access the directories. But Apache won't use those .htaccess and .htpasswd files unless you modify Apache's httpd.conf configuration file, which will likely be at /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf on a Linux system.

To permit usage of those files to control access to directories on the webserver, edit httpd.conf and replace the AllowOverride None in the <Directory /> section with AllowOverride AuthConfig.

# Each directory to which Apache has access can be configured with respect
# to which services and features are allowed and/or disabled in that
# directory (and its subdirectories).
# First, we configure the "default" to be a very restrictive set of
# features.
<Directory />
    Options FollowSymLinks
    AllowOverride None

You can use the .htaccess and .htpasswd method without changing the AllowOverride None line in the following section of httpd.conf.

# AllowOverride controls what directives may be placed in .htaccess files.
# It can be "All", "None", or any combination of the keywords:
#   Options FileInfo AuthConfig Limit
    AllowOverride None
