|Subject:||an idiot question about HTTP Auth|

Suppose I have a folder called "contentingester".
Suppose inside of that folder I put an .htaccess file and inside of that
I put this:
AuthName "Content Ingester"
Suppose I cd to /root/bluepie_content_ingester/ and run this command:
htpasswd -c .htpasswd zippy
Then I type the password twice.
Now I point my browser to the "contentingester" folder on my site.
I can't get in, no matter how many times I type that password.
What am I doing wrong?
I chmoded .htpasswd to 0775 just to be sure the Apache daemon could read
I also thought maybe for some reason Apache just couldn't read stuff in
the root folder, so I re-tried the whole thing using
Still no luck.
What am I missing?
