Description Prasul Surendran 2008-01-14 17:56:27 UTC

We have found that while using the clause:

Options +Indexes 

on .htaccess file, it fails to display password protected directories. From what
it goes from our research is; the directory shows a forbidden flag when apache
tries to Index it. Please can you have this checked. 

For the current error we have used Options +ShowForbidden to have this
displayed, but please do check on why it doesn't get displayed during normal
operation of .htaccess. 

Thank you.

With Best Regards,

Prasul Surendran

This is exactly as designed. Entries are not displayed unless they could be
browsed with the current credentials of the client.

You may be confused because ShowForbidden could be more-accurately named
ShowForbiddenOrUnathorized, but that would be too ugly.
