apache webserver and htaccess


I created an apache webserver which works perfectly, but now I want to password protect my website as I am putting my Family Tree on it.  I found htaccess as a solution.  I created the .htaccess and .htpasswd files and placed them in the folder I need them to be in.  But when I click on the link on my homepage to get there I get an Internal server error.  Not sure what I'm doing wrong.  Can you help?

Thank you,

If you only made changes to the htaccess and htpasswd files then it's likely something you did has broken the server. 

I recommend reverting the changes and then slowly add your changes again. Constantly check to see if something breaks.

You can also view Apache log for errors, typically located at /var/log/apache2/access.log
