           Summary: mod_auth_dbm requires mod_auth or "no groups file?"
                    error
           Product: Apache httpd-2
           Version: 2.0.55
          Platform: PC
               URL: http://jscomputerworks.com/

Apache 2.0.55 on win2000 with mod_auth worked great. I disabled mod_auth and 
tried mod_auth_dbm with no AuthDBMGroupFile directive since all I want to check 
are username and password. Got the error message "configuration error:  couldn't 
check access.  No groups file?". A google check of this revealed that many 
different authentication schemes were encountering this error message and I 
didn't see any answers. After much configuration experimentation, I re-enabled 
mod_auth along with mod_auth_dbm, and then mod_auth_worked! I suspect this 
dependency is not wanted.  As a minimum, the mod_auth_dbm documentation should 
note this dependency.
