Server, username, password problem (XP)

Hi everyone,

Been wasting time trying to figure out why the server doesn't work :s

- I downloaded and installed WAMP, to make installing apache2 super easy
- I installed the latest files of Subversion
- I installed the latest files of Tortoise
- I made a folder in D: called "Repository"
- I went to the folder that I wanted to keep a repository of and "Imported"

I wanted to put up a server, so I followed the instructions in the manual
- Because Tortoise didn't automatically detect Apache, it said I had to copy
some files and such to Apache, edit the httpd.conf file, paste stuff there,
- I added the username and password -> In C:\wamp\apache2\bin\, I typed
htpasswd -c passwd test, then I was prompted to type in the password.
- I restarted WAMP.

Ok, so I did all that, and I'm at the point when I type
http://localhost/svn/Repository/ I'm prompted for a username and password.
However, I press enter in the browser and the username and password prompt
just pops up again (so I'm guessing it's wrong).

I really can't seem to figure out and I need your help.

Thank you,

Ramon Miguel M. Tayag
