    .htaccess how to require authn for all files ina folder, besids certain file extentns

    .htaccess, how to require authentication for files in a folder, besides certian file extentions?

    hey guys, been trying this for about 24 hours now, and im just really beat..

    im using apache2, and i been to a couple sites such as the apache doc site, and no help at all(as in nothing i try works). What i want to do is, require authencation for all files in a directory execpt certain files with a particular extention, allowing all files but some extentions.

    so im attempting to add restriction for all files, and then trying to single out files with a particular extention and remove the require clause...not working though

    i have a folder with some jpgs in it, and some folders with other files, and also jpgs, i will be linking those jpgs from other sites, so i need then to not require authentication, however, all the other files in the doc root i need to set authentication for.

    this is what i have so far.

    <Directory /home/www/shared/>

    <Files *>
    AuthType Basic
    AuthName "This is a restriced site"
    AuthUserFile /pass/a
    AuthGroupFile /pass/g
    Require group GroupName

    #also tried saying overide none and placing the below in a .htaccess fle in the root dir
    <FilesMatch "\.jpg$">
    #<Files ~ "\.(jpg)$">
    #<Files *.jpg>
    Satisfy any
    #Require none #i dont think this call (none) even exists, but i still tried it.
    #Order deny,allow
    Allow from all

    #some other config info here


    can some please help me, or perhaps suggest a link, or a better solution to my problem

    thankx in advance.
