Subject [users@httpd] Authentication ignored issue
Date Wed, 31 Dec 2003 19:00:03 GMT
I have a web-site in Tomcat 4.1.29 from Apache 2.0.48 on Win2K.  I have read
all the directions for creating security on a web-site and I have access to
the httpd.conf file and I am *not* using .htaccess files.

I have followed the directions in the How-To, and I am doing as the docs
prescribe.  I also checked out this newsgroup for all the previous questions
and tried various things ... each time making sure I do restart the Apache

I modified my httpd.conf file to have this near the beginning:
<Directory "C:\web\jakarta-tomcat-4.1.29\webapps\test">
 AuthType Basic
 AuthName "By Invitation Only"
 AuthGroupFile c:\web\Apache2\password\groups
 AuthUserFile  c:\web\Apache2\password\passwords
 Require group mygroup

Instead of having the 'AuthGroupFile' and the 'Require group mygroup' I
tried 'Require valid-user' and this still did not work.

Any help would be much appreciated.   Thanks.
