Subject Passing CGI environment to auth
Date Mon, 11 Feb 2002 00:29:54 GMT

Hi all,

Hopefully what I'm doing isn't so strange that nobody knows what I'm
trying to do. :-)

Basically, I need an external auth program (used with mod_auth_any, or
mod_auth_external.. I don't really care which) to be able to see the
standard CGI variables, like DOCUMENT_URI. I need to do this so I can
authorize users based on user, pass AND the requested document.

When I set up an auth program with mod_auth_any, for example, the user
and password are send as command line arguments. The DOCUMENT_URI
environment variable, however, is not defined.

I won't swear to it, but I thought I'd tried this with apache 1.3.20
and it worked. I'm using 1.3.22 now.
