[nSLUG] Apache Authentication Problem

I am trying to setup restricted password protected access to a few
directories on my apache server. I did following:
1. Created a password file with the "htpasswd" utility for the people whom I
wish to give access to the protected directory
2. Created following entries in the "httpd.conf" file
AuthName "Restricted Files"
require user webuser
Saved httpd.conf and restarted httpd service.
Now when I try to access the secret directory, my browser prompts for
password again and again, it's not being able to authenticate me. If I hit
cancel, I get the usual authentication required error.
Any clues as to where I may have goofed up?
