I tried to do this via the "make download folder public" topics here, but it isn't working
My goal is to give my friends access to some folder on my quickbox server, but I don't want them to have my username/password.
What I did:
1. I created a new user:password in /etc/htpasswd, I didn't put "rutorrent" in between like for the standard user, I think it didn't change the outcome (I have tried many things in the past hours
2. In /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/aliases-seedbox.conf I added the following:
Alias /public.downloads "/home/wyall/testfolder/"
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
allow from all
php_admin_value engine Off
Then I restart the server or/and apache
Problem: The new user isn't working. Via the old one "wyall" I can access that folder via /public.downloads, but the new user specified in htpasswd is not working, the password prompt just pops up again and again.
