Subject [users@httpd] .htaccess - VMS system
Date Wed, 13 Nov 2002 19:30:36 GMT
hi all!

i've got a section of my website i need password protected. i've been using
.htaccess but after reading through some of the apache docs - this might not
be the recommended way of doing it.

regardless, the trouble i have - i'm running apache 1.3.20 on  VMS 7.2-1...
most of the documentation i find is related to UNIX systems. anyone have any
good sites or good info about .htaccess on VMS?

- i need to protect certain pages. right now i use .htaccess and point it to
the VMS sysuaf. this works - but any account that is on the system can be
used to access the web pages. i'd like to make a .htpasswd file and just
keep a list of usernames/passwords in it. can this be done? i've tried just
making a text file called .htpasswd (which is listed in the .htaccess file
with AuthUserFile), which contains entries of "username:password". i get the
login prompt but can never enter an acceptable login.

- the people logging into this site only have access to the webpages (no
login privileges to the machine). is there some way they can have access to
change their own passwords? would it be possible to write some DCL code or
something to do this?

thanks in advance for any help!
