Did you use WAM to remove it from your server?
Did you use an FTP program to remove the .htaccess file?
Did you wait a while, then reupload, then wait a few hours for Godaddy to get caught up with the change?
Those are the steps that seem to be working.
By the way, I have a friend whose name is Obinna Okeke.
I'm having the same exact problem that Phil had with the Login window continuously popping up after entering the correct username and password. Following Phil's steps when he had this issue, I have removed WAM from my server (GoDaddy), re-uploaded it, waited a few hours and tried it again with the issue still coming up. Any help with this would be appreciated.
You are more then likely using the wrong server root path. Make sure you are not selecting the folder you want to protect when editing the ftp settings.
I have used WAM to remove the .htaccess file from the folder i want to protect and used the godaddy FTP program to remove the .htpasswd file from the root folder.
I waited a few hours before re-uploading WAM to the server, and another few hours before trying the username and password.....the login window still kept coming back.
I have checked my root folder in my ftp settings and it isn't pointing to the protected folder. It is pointing to the root folder.
Have something to add? We’d love to hear it!
