Subject basic authentication in apache 1.3.19 ignoring more than 8 characters in the password.
Date Wed, 10 Apr 2002 09:14:40 GMT

The Basic Authentication in apache 1.3.19 is using only the first 8
of the password for authentication.
any characters more than 8 characters in the password are ignored.

Is this the behaviour or can we configure apache 1.3.19 to use more than 8
in the password for basic authentication?

let me know
