    On a quite new server (Suse 9.3, Plesk 7.5.4) I have a problem with protected directories. All hints from other threads did not show a solution.

    The directory is protected using the Plesk interface.

    Plesk stores the user credentials in a special file under /pd of the domain directory and adds an appropriate record to httpd.include under /conf.

    So far, everything is there.


    Apache does not seem to recognize the section in httpd.include properly.

    [crit] [client] (13)Permission denied: /home/httpd/vhosts/xxxxxx.xx/httpdocs/cgiproxy/.htaccess pcfg_openfile: unable to check htaccess file, ensure it is readable.

    Apache tries to access .htaccess which it expects in the protected directory.

    The entry AuthUserFile in httpd.include pointing to /pd/d..cgiproxy is obviously ignored.

    The problem persists independed of the setting of custom error documents.

    Any explanation for the behaviour of Apache under Plesk?
