    Hi all,

    I'm currently having a bit of an issue with being able to use the password protect dir function within cPanel for symbolic directories. In cPanel 10 there was never an issue but it seems now with cPanel 11 there is an issue where it won't add in the users and it won't save the config, it seems that the .htaccess file isn't creating. I've checked ownership and chmod'd all the related stuff to 777, I can password protect a folder that exists within the same folder as the symlink is contained in, but not the actual symlink itself.

    Any help with this would be great.
