           Summary: Digest Authentication example incorrect
           Product: Apache httpd-2
           Version: 2.3-HEAD
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P5
         Component: Documentation
        AssignedTo: bugs@httpd.apache.org
        ReportedBy: arc@ancpl.com


http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/mod/mod_auth_digest.html shows an example 
configuration for "Using Digest Authentication".

The example is incorrect. They keyword "AuthUserFile" is in the example which 
is incorrect: the keyword should be "AuthDigestFile".

Incorrect example:
  <Location /private/>
  AuthType Digest
  AuthName "private area"
  AuthDigestDomain /private/ http://mirror.my.dom/private2/
  AuthDigestProvider file
  AuthUserFile /web/auth/.digest_pw
  Require valid-user
  </Location>

Corrected example should be:
  <Location /private/>
  AuthType Digest
  AuthName "private area"
  AuthDigestDomain /private/ http://mirror.my.dom/private2/
  AuthDigestProvider file
  AuthDigestFile /web/auth/.digest_pw
  Require valid-user
  </Location>

http://httpd.apache.org/docs/1.3/mod/mod_auth_digest.html correctly describes 
the necessary directive.

There are a number of posts on many forums which exhibit symptoms of the 
incorrect directive being used.

Arc.
