Subject [PATCH] let mod_auth_dbm stand on its own two feet
Date Thu, 19 May 2005 12:04:55 GMT
(I ASSume this is resolved with the AAA redesign in 2.1-dev.  I didn't
check, though.)

Try this with 2.0:

<Location /protected>
authtype basic
authname "Restricted Files"
authdbmuserfile /scratch/inst/20/jeffdb
require valid-user

If mod_auth isn't loaded, you get this after a successful user/pass
verification, and request fails:

[client] configuration error:  couldn't check access.  No
groups file?: /protected/, referer: ...

Then add LoadModule for mod_auth and it starts working as expected.

mod_auth_dbm is missing some boilerplate handling of the require
directive which causes it to decline its auth_checker hook.
