For the record, this still works. You are literally given the password. You get a confirmation page when you get it right.

If you're still lost, look up famous comedy routines from the 30s for help with the riddle.

Ia'm confused, yesterday I spent all evening solving this riddle. I found most rather quickly, including the "riddle page". And I actually figured out the riddle pretty much immediately, but it didn't work. Today when I checked, the text in the same "riddle page" had changed, and now it worked, using the same solution to the riddle but with the new text. Could someone explain?

For those still stuck, rest assured, or more likely frustrated, that the challenge is not broken. It is completely solvable at time of posting. IMO this challenge is challenging for all the wrong reasons. There's a lot of different levels and a strong implication from the hint in the very first post which will lead you astray.

Hint 0: Finding the login page should be straightforward from the hint in the first thread post. Don't overthink this step.
Hint 1: The Apache file exists and is accessible but it's not where you'll naturally expect it to be. Don't give up.
Hint 2: Should be obvious from all of the previous posts (one even gives the answer explicitly) but look at the song names coming up, they have something in common. Once you've figured that out, how might you store a music library using a simple directory structure? How would you organise it? Maybe the website organises them in the same way.
Hint 3: The Apache file you found is now useful.

That last part is the bit that fucked me off. It's implied that you use the access file to look for a hidden directory structure or password file, but (arguably a spoiler) you're just supposed to work out the hidden directory by a little deduction then trial and error. Then to add insult to injury you're presented with a riddle at the end (I did like the attempt to mislead here, but I'm too pissed off about the earlier hidden directory shit to be positive about this mission). Anyway, challenge is still solvable but cheap and unsatisfying.

This was a fun one. Thanks guys. This took me about an hour to work through after reading this thread. The only thing that really confused me was getting to the directory structure. Is this how people really organized music back in the day? I don't remember that. I still don't understand why the directory structure is like that. Don't overthink the riddle at the end.
