I am receiving an error in apache when trying to access a restricted website (using htaccess/password file). The error is:
Permission denied: Could not open password file...

The error shows up in apache logs when someone enters in a correct username and password when trying to view a restricted webpage.
The setup is as follows:
Server1 (netware 6.5 sp8) has the webserver
Server2 (netware 6.5 sp8) has the homedirs and public_html folders

The problem does not occur if I setup an htaccess / pw file on apache's root dir on Server1. The pw file is of course not in the web structure.

I can't seem to figure out the problem. How can I figure out what user is loading apache?
