Perhaps you should try to add the following lines to your
local/config.php file to enable http authentication:
$EnableHTTPBasicAuth = 1;
$AuthRealmFmt = "The_specific_AuthName_you_used_previously";
$EnableRemoteUserAuth = 1;
The difference between theory and practice in theory is much less
than the difference between theory and practice in practice.
