I have a protected directory on an hosted IONOS server. It correctly works when the correct credentials are entered, but when a user hits cancel, it redirects that user to the hosting provider’s promo default page.
eg current htaccess
AuthUserFile /path/to/the/password/file/.htpasswd AuthType Basic AuthName "Protected Page" <Files "index.php"> Require valid-user </Files>
If the user hits cancel you are redirected to the host’s default page. Tried adding a default, but I doubt this is the way to it.
Preferred outcome: popup box opens in a small window on the web page and where cancel is executed, it closes the popup and stays on the same page.
For anyone working with Apache I assume this is standard stuff, but not for me.
