Invalid command 'AuthUserFile'...

Invalid command ‘AuthUserFile’, perhaps misspelled or defined by a module not included in the server configuration

I have 2 CentOS5 servers which are very similar except one is 64 bit OS and the other is 32 bit OS.

Im trying to do a basic .htaccess password protected directory and I get the error above on the 64 bit server. Looking in nodeworx there are a lot of modules that the 32bit has the 64bit doesn’t not sure if this happen after an apache update or something.

Any idea which module I need to add to get this to work?

I added auth_basic_module, but that didn’t do the trick

Seems it was an update b/c there is a httpd.conf.rpmnew which has all the same modules as in the live 32 bit httpd.conf, so I’m just going to put it back the way it was.

Yeah, the latest apache RPM set for Centos5 64 bit should have that issue resolved - the update would have just fixed the initial problem, but it detected that the httpd.conf was edited from the default install, so it created the “fix” as httpd.conf.rpmnew instead. So, you did the right thing.
