Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 52943] New: Document REMOTE_USER on Authentication pages
Date Mon, 19 Mar 2012 09:12:27 GMT
https://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=52943

             Bug #: 52943
           Summary: Document REMOTE_USER on Authentication pages
           Product: Apache httpd-2
           Version: 2.0-HEAD
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: major
          Priority: P2
         Component: Documentation
        AssignedTo: docs@httpd.apache.org
        ReportedBy: techtonik@gmail.com
    Classification: Unclassified


Apache Authentication docs are only useful for protecting static content. They
are  missing critical information for web applications about how the server
passes user information (user name, and perhaps something else) further.

There should be a chapter for web application developers that at the very least
describes de-facto REMOTE_USER variable standard - when it is set, what are the
values etc.
