Apache security

#1
I have tried to configure my httpd.conf so that when accessing the page you are prompted for a password. I have created a passwd file using htpasswd and
a group file.
i have this configured in my httpd.conf:
---------------------------
<Directory />
Options FollowSymLinks ExecCGI Includes Indexes
AllowOverride None
AuthName NLA
AuthType Basic
AuthDBMGroupFile /usr/local/apache/groupasswd
AuthDBMUserFile /usr/local/apache/passwd

require group nla
</Directory>
-------------------------
I am using a Debian 2.2 and apache 1.3.12
When a go to the wep page i get an authentication window but even if i supply the right username and password i get access denied.
In the apache error.log i get:
DBM user "username" not found /home/nla (this is my Document root)
(2)No such file or directory: could not open the file: /usr/local/apache/passwd
I know that the file passwd is there and all the right modules is loaded.

None of use here are knowledgable at the level you need information for. Sorry -- have you tried the Apache site for help?

Are you on a virtual server?

What you really need to configure is the .htaccess file.
