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
