Great series. I've learned so much.
Would buy the book.


I can' get the password file going.


When i type htpasswd -c /Library/Webserve/ .htpasswd (my user name) to the terminal, i just get the help instructions echoed back.


Using pico i successfully created a .htpasswd file. (owned by my user account with read/write permission. But, i don't know know to create encypted password. I can't simply use something like Vcv7xTIIW6g7U... in your example below, can i?

    Never mind the above. I found the problem.
    For some silly reason, i was putting a space between / and .htpasswd.
    Bad idea. No space needed.
