I've got a strange one here. I've seen it before, but it's been a while and I
can't remember what I did.
I got a new client on a hosting service I'm not familiar with. Among other
things they need a password protected directory.
No problem - created the password and group files where they can't be gotten to.
Created a .htaccess file with basic authentication using the password and group
files above. Again, no problem.
Interestingly enough, when I try to access that directory as:
I have to enter the userid/password twice. However, if access
(notice the extra slash at the end) it works with just one entry.
OK - so the first one is being redirected to the second. But why do I have to
enter the userid/password twice?
I don't have access to the httpd.conf on this machine so I can't see what
options they have set. However, I ran into something similar at least 2-3 years
ago but can't remember hos I solved it.
