I believe there is a conflict with the Apache Module Passthrough Authentication that Cpanel uses .... if I recall. We had a similar problem a while back when using the auth_mysql and had to remove it.

.htaccess protection doesn't use mod_auth_passthrough, it uses basic auth, putting the auth info in .htpasswd file. mod_auth_mysql apparently takes that over and since the user/pass is no in the db it can't authenticate.

I'd recommend properly configuring mod_auth_mysql to not interfere with .htaccess basic auth.

What is the best way to install mod_auth_mysql on cpanel? Do we still have to build it manually for apache or is there an automated cpanel option? I didn't see an option in easy apache but I did find a cpanel uninstall script for it:

Code:
/scripts/nomodauthmysql
I figure if there is an uninstall script there must be an install script too somewhere? I was hoping there was something built into cpanel to install mod_auth_mysql so that I wouldn't have to do it manually after every automatic cpanel update.
