Subject Authentication Bug?
Date Fri, 02 Jun 2006 15:07:28 GMT
I'm trying to move to Apache 2.2.2 and I'm running into some
authentication troubles.  
When I enter the correct username/password it authenticates properly.
When I enter an invalid username, I get prompted up to three times and
it fails with a 401 like expected.  My problem is when I attempt to
authenticate with a valid username and provide an invalid password.  It
fails with a 500 error and this message is in the error log "[3692]
auth_ldap authenticate: user admin authentication failed; URI /
[ldap_simple_bind_s() to check user credentials failed][Invalid
Credentials]".  It only prompts me once.  If I don't enter the correct
password, it fails for the browser session.  
I'm not the only one experiencing this issue, see the thread on the user
Is there something wrong with my configuration?  If not, I can open a
bug.  In my opinion this would be a pretty serious regression from
Apache 2.0.x (hopefully I'm just missing something obvious though).
Here's my authentication configuration:
    <AuthnProviderAlias ldap test>
      AuthLDAPURL ldap://localhost/ou=people
    <Location />
      AuthzLDAPAuthoritative off
      AuthName "Test"
      AuthType Basic
      AuthBasicProvider test
      require valid-user
