    There was an error.
    This error can occur because of a syntactically incorrect .htaccess file , entered by you or one of your scripts in the current folder , or from your site that tries to establish a connection to an external server unreachable
    Options -Indexes
    AuthType Basic
    AuthName "Restricted Area"
    AuthUserFile /
    require valid-user

    The path is wrong, it should be /membri/freetesting/admin/.htpasswd. However, why didn't you use the integrated tool in the control panel to manage .htaccess based authentication? You just need to click on the padlock near the directory path (next to the PHP5 and FTP buttons in the File management section).
