Jack of all trades, and try to be good enough at all. Something like that.

I love bolting stuff together - data from different sources, tools from different platforms, applications from different vendors. I also hate reinventing anything that has already been done - there is no need to reinvent, when time can be better spent helping to extend someone else's project. We should all be thinking that way.

Having said that, some projects needed throwing away years ago and starting again from scratch, building on everything that has been learned over the years.

If only there were more hours in the day to work on things I find interesting...

comment Password protect an alias virtual directory
I've tried that, with no change. With Require valid-user set I see one directory (the wrong directory) and if I comment it out I see the right directory. In either case there is no user/password prompt and nothing in the apache error log.

Could I be missing an authentication module in httpd.conf? None seem to be set.

comment Password protect an alias virtual directory
If I comment out Require valid-user from my .htaccess, then I see the files from /path/to/subdomain/files and if I uncomment Require valid-user then I see the main domain files (a Drupal CMS). How can requiring a valid user cause apache to deliver files from completely different directories?

comment Password protect an alias virtual directory
The reason for keeping the files in /mydir in a separate area (in a CPanel subdmain for convenince) is for organisation of the scripts. The reason for using an alias folder under the one domain is so they can share a certificate.
