server config file ?

Sep 2013
I was looking around on some domain's files and when I try to get on the site it asks me to give my login details. if I login then I can see the site and everything is alright. I thought these kind of things were handled by a .htaccess file but when I took a look at the .htaccess file in that path I saw that it only contained this:

# disabled .htaccess, security now by server config file
So I went looking for that server config file. I can't find it. I searched google about it and I can't even find which extensions those files have. neither which location it has. So now I just wanted to ask where I can find such a file.

If anything is not clear then feel free to ask about it.
Thanks in advance
