I might be missing something, but I've tried many combinations, the best 
would be: (all non relevant lines ommited)...

<Directory /var/www/members/*/secure>
  AuthDBDUserRealmQuery "SELECT pass FROM blah WHERE user = %s and
realm = %s
     Require valid-user

Of course this match any ol bugger, it would be nice to extend this so 
that perhaps a %*% could be used in the directory statement? This would 
say match up with the realm, so... an attempt to login as foo@bar, being 
user foo logging into user bars protected directory would see:

<Directory /var/www/members/%*%/secure>
  AuthDBDUserRealmQuery "SELECT pass FROM blah WHERE user = %s and
realm = %s

and be read as in this case as authenticate foo to enter
/var/www/members/bar/secure ... if you know what I mean.


I read usenet and lists in pine. But m$ outlook, thunderbird and gmail
often use html span/whatever for quotes, makes it hard to tell who said
what, so I dont try. If I ignore you, thats why! Use a compliant mailer.
