Subject [jira] [Created] (COUCHDB-1479) Futon config UI won't allow "WWW-Authenticate" option to be added (name is lowercased)
Date Sun, 13 May 2012 17:52:48 GMT
Jens Alfke created COUCHDB-1479:

             Summary: Futon config UI won't allow "WWW-Authenticate" option to be added (name
is lowercased)
                 Key: COUCHDB-1479
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Futon
         Environment: Mac OS X
            Reporter: Jens Alfke
            Priority: Minor

When using the config UI in futon to add a new option, via the "Add a new section..." link
at the bottom of the page, the name of the option is lowercased when written to the .ini file.
(For some reason the case is preserved when altering the runtime configuration, though, so
the problem doesn't manifest itself until the next time the server is restarted.)

This causes trouble when attempting to enable HTTP basic auth by adding a "WWW-Authenticate"
option (value "Basic") to the [httpd] section. The actual data written to the .ini file is:

    www-authenticate = Basic

which is not recognized when the server loads its configuration on restart.
