User authentication for subfolder not working

    We are using Oracle Application and Database Server for our application.One of the functionalities of the Application is to send emails with attachments.The logic is that the Application would generate the attachment file on the Application Server.Then a database package uses Oracle's utl_http package/procedures(more specifically utl_http.request_pieces where the single argument is a URL) to pick up the file from the Application Server via URL, attach the file and send the email.Exchange and Relay Server is also set in the Application.The problem is that the folder containing the folder which stores the attachments is having user authentication set.Example : The main folder is /apps/interface, this folder requires a valid user when it is accessed via URL on a web browser.Alias created in httpd.conf Alias /int-dir/ "/apps/interface/"The folder /apps/interface/email/ is the folder where the attachment files are generated and stored.Application Server : Server : Server : as per httpd.confAlias /int-dir/ "/apps/interface/" AuthName "Interface folder" AuthType Basic AuthUserFile "/u01/app/oracle/as10g/oasmid/Apache/Apache/conf/.htpasswd" require user scott Options Indexes Multiviews IncludesNoExec Order deny,allow Deny from all Allow from Allow from Allow from Using the above configuration the Application is able to attach the files and send the email, however, when we access the following URL : - it prompts for user authenticationHowever if we use the following URL : - it does not prompt for user authentication, and all the files in the folder are displayed in the browser.I have tried so many things including AllowOverride, .htaccess, but i am not able to get user authentication for the email folder.Please help me if you can.Thanking you in advance,GLad to give any more information that i can.dxbrocky
