Could this be a text vs. binary issue? I'm grasping at straws here...
It's good that you've moved everything to the local disk - it helps to
eliminate as many variables as possible. Did you get an authenticated
access webpage (.html, as opposed to a CGI script) working? Can you
initially create the user file in the directory where you're trying to set
up authentication (for testing purposes)? Can you show the output of "ls
-la" in that directory?
