okay thanks,

OS: FreeBSD 4.8
Apache:  1.3.27

but I am having the strangest issue with my .htaccess file

--- snip ---

AuthName "Protected Area Name"
AuthUserFile /usr/local/www/data/phpMyAdmin/.htpasswd
AuthType Basic
Require user noah

--- snip ---

shell# htpasswd -c .htpasswd noah
New password:
Re-type new password:
Adding password for user noah

okay so I have the proper files in place.  

shell# ls -l .ht*
-rw-r--r--  1 root  wheel  121 Jul 13 23:36 .htaccess
-rw-r-----  1 root  wheel   19 Jul 13 23:33 .htpasswd
shell# pwd
/usr/local/www/data/phpMyAdmin

my browser asks for a password but I never get allowed past the password popup.
