Hi Dhivya. I suspect that the problem is that you have not granted 
permissions for this user to access the vhost you're using. When you 
initially create a user they don't have permission to access anything.

At this point the HTTP API will reject access. Unfortunately the web 
browser will typically respond to this by just popping up the 
authenticate dialog again, which is not very clear.

Since this is a semi-common issue, I'll put some sort of warning on the 
user detail page.

Cheers, Simon
