    Problems with .htaccess

    I'm trying to a .htaccess file and i keep getting the following error:'

    Internal Server Error

    The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

    Please contact the server administrator, root@localhost 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.
    Apache/2.0.54 (Fedora) Server at Port 80

    This is my .htaccess file:

    UserFile /var/www/.htpasswd
    AuthGroupFile /dev/null
    AuthName ByPassword
    AuthType Basic

    require user personal


    I'm not sure what other info to give, I'm useing FC4 and apache 2.0.54

    I checked that my apache config file, and it set to let me use .htaccess files and it is. Any other sugestions?

    Thanks in advance,

    You probably want something like this for your .htaccess file:
    AuthType Basic
    AuthName "ByPassword"
    AuthUserFile /var/www/.htpasswd
    Require user personal
