Yeah you're right.  Sorry for not reading that small section!

My main problem (along with the non-existent htdigest file) was that the 
mod_auth_digest wasn't loaded, and I had lots of problems trying to load 
it.  Googling for it anywhere says use "digest_auth_module" to call the 
mod_auth_digest module.  The Apache docs confirms this here:


But the sticker is that I'm not using version 1.3 but rather version 2.0 
of Apache, so I thought "Hmm, lets check out the 2.0 docs" (pretty 
obvious you would have thought...) and found:


and it says it's called with "auth_digest_module".  2 words's placements 
has been changed over.  Which is why all of the advice on Google I read 
didn't work - it was for Apache 1.3.  Wasn't clear!

Argh!  Least it all works beautifully now!

Thanks very much for your help :)  Much appreciated!

Cheers - Piers
