I don't believe there's a log that will tell you exactly what the problem is
with the login. But, this may help... A couple of times now, I've
inadvertently left a blank space at the end of the password. When I've
removed the space and stopped/restarted the webserver, I've been able to log
on. You might want to check for an extra blank after the password and make
sure that your entry looks like:
netview.PROPERTY.user : password
where user is the username and password is whatever password you've assigned.
I also usually start a fresh browser session after restarting webserver, but
that could just be superstition on my part.
Someone mentioned adding a UNIX account, but you really don't need one. The
web server doesn't look at the UNIX password file for authentication.
