Subject MatchAll description
Date Sat, 15 Nov 2008 02:09:25 GMT
http://httpd.apache.org/docs/trunk/mod/mod_authz_core.html#matchall
"If none of the directives contained within the <MatchAll> directive fails, 
and at least one succeeds, then the <MatchAll> directive succeeds. "

According to this, following config would grant an access from 127.0.0.1
with no username/password.

<Location /server-info>
	SetHandler server-info

	AuthType Digest
        AuthName "private area"
        AuthUserFile "/var/www/password"

	Match valid-user
	Match ip 127.0.0.0/8
</Location>

But actually 127.0.0.1 needs to be "valid-user".
Considering difference between MatchAll and MatchAny, 
this is correct behavior.
The How to says different thing from mod_authz_core doc: 

http://httpd.apache.org/docs/trunk/howto/auth.html#beyond
"To authorize the request, none of the negated directives can match
their parameters, while all of the positive directives must match their
parameters (or else return a neutral result)."

mod_authz_core doc should be fixed ?

I'm not sure which is better for this mail, docs@ or dev@.


Regards,
Takashi
