.htaccess works in http, not in https

Hi everybody,
first time poster.

This has me a little perplexed.
I don't have shell access to this machine so i can't check logs and such to see what is actually going on, but my .htaccess script works fine under http, but it fails to accept the same password with https accesss.

my thought is that perhaps there is some form of authentication difference, or perhaps i need to rebuild my .htpasswd file again.

however this is my .htaccess file

AuthUserFile /full/os/path/to/file/.htpasswd
AuthType Basic
AuthName "Admin Folder"
Require valid-user

any ideas?
