help with .htaccess

[b][red]This message was edited by javaKate at 2006-1-8 16:34:3[/red][/b][hr]
hello,

ok, i'm working with .htaccess to restrict users from getting to the administrator portion of my website. i chmod-ed the .htaccess page to be 664 permissions. right now, the code for the .htaccess page and the code for the .htpasswd page are both in the directory called "Admin", which is one level down from the main directory.

here's the .htaccess code:
AuthName "Kate's Admin section"
AuthType BASIC
AuthUserFile .htpasswd
require kate


here's the .htpasswd code:
kate:encryptedpassword

it prompts me for the login information, but when i enter the correct information, it refuses me and prompts me to try again. so what am i doing wrong? any help anyone can give me would be greatly, greatly appreciated.

thanks!
-kate
