If I try to run DBM auth without a group file (my preference), then httpd
cores.  If I try to run a DBM group file it cores also, but I may not have
the DBM group file set up correctly.  That is undocumented, or I have not
found it on the pages yet.  I tried creating a DBM group file
by using the group name as the password, as below; I have no idea if this is
correct.  I also added an entry with the group- and username reversed.
Neither worked; I didn't expect the latter to work.  dbmmanage grpfile
adduser username groupname   I am having trouble getting a core file, so I
have not been able to debug this.  With all this as a background, I have two
questions:  1. Does anyone have DBM auth running without a    group file?
As I understand it the group    file should not be necessary (certainly
shouldn't core!).  2. What is the method for building a DBM group    file?
Does the DBM gro!
