Editing .htaccess - Password Protection
I want to create a Vanilla forum which is only available for a small group of people. My plan is, that others shouldn't be able to see the forum at all.
So I tried to modify the existing .htaccess with the following code:
allow from all
In addition I created the .passwd file with:
When I now want to access the forum the correct form appears, but when I want to log in there's error 500.
It was the first time I tried to modify the .htaccess, I've never done that before. Is there a problem with Vanilla or the existing part of the .htaccess with my additions? Or it's just my fault cause of mistakes in the code above?
Hope you can help me!
