It was really hard to find, what was wrong. The FAQ was not very helpful. 

I had tried many times to write this .htaccess file and creating passwords
as well, but I did not know that:

I had to change in 

the line: 
AllowOverride None 
for the line: 
AllowOverride All

and stop and start the apache server... 

Now it is done and working. 
Thanks all.
