I normally don't use ubuntu but ran through the process using vmplayer
and their downloadable 'browser appliance' which turns out to be
a basic ubuntu install that lets you apt-get anything else you want.
Mine came up working with the password it gave during the install and
I was able to change it with the command above.  Does
/var/log/apache2/error.log have anything interesting about not being
able to find or read the htpasswd file?
