Hello,
I want to set a password for the WordPress longing and I did:
Code:
# htpasswd -c /etc/apache2/.WP-htpasswd myuser
Then opened ".htaccess" file and added following lines to it:
Code:
<Files wp-login.php>
AuthType Digest
AuthName "Password Protected"
AuthDigestDomain /wp-login.php https://www.mywebsite.com/wp-login.php
AuthUserFile /etc/apache2/.WP-htpasswd
Require valid-user
Satisfy All
</Files>
But, website showed me "Internal Server Error" and Apache log showed:
Code:

The Apache version is:

How to solve it?

Thank you.

Hey there! mod_auth_digest isn't installed by default on cPanel machines. You can install that Apache module through the WHM >> EasyApache 4 interface, and then I would expect that command to work properly.

Can you try that and let us know the results?
