Today, trying to access that site, a prompt pops up asking to login (never asked previously) but I can't log by no means (credentials are OK) and the following message appears:

Authorization Required

This server could not verify that you are authorized to access the document requested. Either you supplied the wrong credentials (e.g., bad password), or your browser doesn't understand how to supply the credentials required.

Apache Server at Port 80

I am sure (99,99%) userid & password I typed are correct. Could it be that they are doing some maintenance, is it a firefox problem or what else?

Most of the cases like this the problem is with credentials (username and/or password misspelled, expired password, etc.) but since you are so sure I would try with a different browser first, then I would try to understand if I were in that 0.01% case the credentials might be wrong.

Edit: I used the google "cached trick" and got last available screen-shot. As you can see the web site was off-line for maintenance and probably they still are having some trouble. If I were you I would try to email some of their email addresses (probably they have or and tell/ask them about this issue... in bocca al lupo (good luck)

Hi, I'm a collaborator of (MarioS). In the past week-end we updated the website. The pop-up was a htaccess login request and we used it to block the website during migration. Now all is working well.
