    .htaccess AuthUserFile move to another server
    I have moved my scripts to another server via FTP. Everything seems to be working but I have been looking at my .htaccess file working on another problem ( and I see that my AuthUserFile and AuthGroupFile are most likely wrong - however my store *appears* to be working correctly.

    Can you explain what these should point to and tell me if I need to correct them?

    Thank you

    AuthUserFile and AuthGroupFile statements (in .htaccess file) are used by the server to control password protected webpages. If you want to password protect a webpage, you would set those values; see: Apache Server Documentation > Authentication, Authorization, and Access Control. Of course, it would be counter-productive to password protect an online store!
