Subject When to do the provider lookup - mod_auth_basic/digest.c
Date Mon, 16 Sep 2002 18:43:10 GMT
   In both mod_auth_basic.c and mod_auth_digest.c, calling
authn_lookup_provider() is done while reading the configuration file and
handling the AuthBasicProvider or AuthDigestProvider directives.  Would
it not be better to do the actual provider look up in a post_config
hook?  This would eliminate the requirement that all provider modules
must be loaded before the base authentication module and allow all
authentication and provider modules to be loaded and registered before
any lookups take place.
