Apache now requires a password after upgrade


I have a Drobo5N and I’ve been using Apache root document directory for my own status display pages. I recently upgraded Apache and now to display even the index.html file I’m required to enter my Drobo Admin password.
It looks like Apache “hardening” was added/enabled after the upgrade.
I’ve been trying to find a way to either disable the hardening or find some configuration that allows me to access either www or a sub directory with out having to enter credentials…
So far I’ve been unsuccessful.
Can anyone help?
