Error "Authentication Failed (-25)"
Error "Authentication Failed (-40)"
Unable to login with the iFolder client


1. Stop iFolder by running AP2WEBDN
2. open the file SYS:\apache2\iFolder\server\httpd_ifolder_nw.conf
3. check the path for the directive iFolderServerRoot and iFolderUserRoot, the path has to match the path on the file system where the iFolder data is stored, it is case sensitive so make sure that the case in the file matches the case on the file system
4. save the file and start iFolder by running AP2WEBUP

Additional Information

The iFolderDocumentRoot is pointing to a directory path that does not exist.
