Hi,

Does anybody know why after I install the FormsBasicAuth module, it always prompts for credentials, even when accessing the site through the web.


Thanks for the input

By prompting, I assume you mean you get the windows authentication pop-up prompt?  If that's the case, you need to set up Forms-based Authentication on the site first.  Dan Attis has a nice blog on how to set this up.  You can find it at:

Also, you'll need to get the latest version of the code from source, fix a few issues (the fixes are documented in the Issue Tracker and in this discussion board) and rebuild the solution.  I had to make a number of changes to the source code to get it all working nicely.
