mod_auth_pam problems



Title: Message
I've just built up a server, and added in mod_auth_pam to allow my system users to log in to other things via the web.
 
Heres what i did after the install
 
added a user 'test'
 
created a folder in /var/www/html called test
 
created a file called .htaccess which contained
 
AuthType Basic
AuthName "Testing mod_auth_pam"
require group test
require user test
 
Then i added the line
AllowOverride AuthConfig
 
to /etc/httpd/conf/access.conf
 
and restarted apache
 
Upon restart i get the error
 
Syntax error on line 9 of /etc/httpd/conf/access.conf: AllowOverride not allowed here
 
I followed what little documentation i could find about mod_auth_pam to the letter, referring to the faq included in the distribution to add the line into the access.conf.
 
First i'd like to know how i can tell whether mod_auth_pam is being loaded by apache?
 
Then i'd like to know how to get rid of this error message and how i can get the darned thing working!!!
 
I'm in distress here could a fellow hacker help PLEASE!!!!
