Hi fellow streamers ;-)

I am trying to add an user authenticated mount point to our Icecast2.2
I include the relevant section of my config file below.


        <authentication type="htpasswd">
        <option name="filename" value="myauth"/>
         <option name="allow_duplicate_users" value="0"/>

So far so good. When I start Icecast the mounts so in the admin page. If I
try to add an user the following error appears
User add failed - check the icecast error log
The log files states ;
INFO admin/admin_handle_request Received admin command manageauth.xsl on
mount "/stream2.ogg"
WARN auth/auth_get_htpasswd_userlist Failed to open authentication database
"myauth": Permission denied

So probably I have something overlooked ...but no clue where to look for.
I trust some of you will recognize where I have screwed-up.

Thanks in advance!
