If you are receiving the following error 500:
Internal Server Error
The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.
Please contact the server administrator, firstname.lastname@example.org and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.
More information about this error may be available in the server error log.
Recently limited functionality has been allowed within .htaccess, this allows any directives for limiting the availability, so for a quick example:
Deny from all
This can protect a directory.
There is however a caveat that comes along with only allowing this. Any directives which do not fall under the scope of 'Limit' will cause the server to choke and spit out the above 500 error.
To fix it, either comment out all other directives in your .htaccess, or move/delete the offending .htaccess.
Commenting in .htaccess is a line prefixed with '#'.
It is not at this time possible to use block statements around the limits.
# this would not work
We are working on a solution.

This is the first time I've used an .htaccess/.htpasswd file.
I have mostly used IIS so I just set the permissions in windows.
Anyway I made a folder in the root of my site called secure and one underneath it pass (/secure/pass)
I went online and generated an .htaccess and .htpasswd file.
I uploaded them to the server
Here are the contents:
.htaccess - in secure folder
<Limit GET POST>
.htpasswd - in pass folder
Now I'm prompted for a username/password but it won't accept it.
Does anyone have any ideas?
