Hello,
Ubuntu 16.04.6
Apache: 2.4.41
MySQL: 5.7.28

Having problems with .htaccess it requests multiple (2-3 times) for authentication.

Its about MediaWiki 1.34.1. They suggestet to ask in Apache forum.
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Topic:Vlxqvsejuy58k1ah

Description:
Everything is under mydomain.com/wiki/
After first authentication window the wiki site appears, but without the logo (left corner). Than it needs to confirm a second authentication window and than also the logo appears in left upper corner..

I us in LocalSettings.php this:
$wgLogo = $wgScriptPath . '/images/mylogo.png';
as mentioned "below the definition of $wgScriptPath!"

Now, I was putting the original mediawiki logo under /resources/assets/wiki.png
Than the authentication window appears again three times. Even when I rename it to wiki.png_not
Only when I rename also the logo under '/images/mylogo.png_not, so no logo is showing in left upper corner, the authentication window appears only two times. I wonder, still two times. Thanks.

Please post your .htaccess file content. If it is long use http://apaste.info/ or http://hastebin.com/

Hello,
the .htaccess file:
Code:

AuthUserFile /www/htdocs/sub/domain.net/wiki/.htpasswd
AuthGroupFile /dev/null
AuthName 'bitte Zugangsdaten eingeben'
AuthType Basic
require valid-user


Thanks.

The 401 for the credentials should appear only once with that config, unless the client you use does not support it (I know of that issue with iOS clients) or there are different FQDN in the HTML like example.com and sub.example.com

You can remove or comment out AuthGroupFile to /dev/null
