Subject Authentication HOWTO
Date Sun, 28 Jan 2001 11:58:27 GMT
Sometime ago I volunteered to fix up Bowen's authentication articles into
a howto. However work reared its ugly head and I haven't had the time
until today. I'm more or less done, but I'd like some more input on a
couple of things from the articles.

In one of the examples Rich has a; AuthGroupFile /dev/null. Is this
really good practice?

In a couple of places Rich talks about how mod_auth sometimes doesn't
authenticate if the user list file is too big. Does anyone know why this
happens? I assume that something times out while waiting for a reply from
the module. It would be nice to include an explanation as to why this

I think that's all for now. I'll upload the howto into the CVS as soon as
