I've placed this code in the .htaccess file of the folder I want to protect:

AuthName "restricted area"
AuthType Basic
AuthUserFile /home/#/#/#/#/#/.htpasswd
require valid-user

In the same folder, I placed this .htpasswd:

my:pass

When I go to the URL of the protected folder, the browser keeps asking me for a password over and over, even though I'm typing the correct one.

I know that the root directory mentioned in AuthUserFile is ok because I've found it out with:

<?php
    $dir = dirname(__FILE__);
    echo "<p>Full path to a .htpasswd file in this dir: " . 
        $dir . "/.htpasswd" . "</p>";
?>

Where's the problem?
