Password protected directories unreliable

    I've noted that the function to create password protected directories is working unreliably.
    When creating new directories through Plesk, it is ok. But if I protect a directory that is already existing, it doesn't work or works with big delays.
    Manually using .htaccess files locks the dirs immediately.

    Plesk puts configuration for protected directories directly into the httpd.include file and not a .htaccess file. This means that the configuration won't take effect until httpd reloads (up to 15 mins with default Plesk setting). However, changes to the usernames and passwords on a directory that already has protection working should take effect immediately.

    Force a manual reload by executing apachectl graceful at a root shell.
