Remove the RequestHeader unset Authorization configuration from Apache and restart the proxy server.

I am trying to do a first push to a newly installed BitBucket on a Windows server and I keep getting "fatal: Authentication failed for http://" 

I can log in from the web gui so I know the account and password is good.

My next step is 

"Remove the RequestHeader unset Authorization configuration from Apache and restart the proxy server."  But there is no reference to what file that is or where that is. Can anyone tell me how to do that on a Windows install of BitBucket?

@Anthony Glaser  Most likely should be in the  configuration file  but depends on how you  install it Apache  reverse proxy. Look for  *.conf  file  in  

C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Apache2.4\.....

 I suppose there should be something like this

<VirtualHost *:80>



<Location />

</Location />

RequestHeader unset Authorization


So as  the "error says"  to remove it.


Kind regards,
