Subject Re: [users@httpd] Authentication ignored issue

Actually, I don't want to protect a directory within the web-site ... I want
to protect a web-site that is a virtual host under tomcat.   For example, if
I go to http://unsecure.mydomain.net then I don't want security.  If I go to
http://secured.mydomain.net then I do want the dialog box to open up.  I am
using IE 6 for this on another windows box in order to test this.

The part that aggravates me to no end is thaton previous versions of Apache
(2.0.42) , this all worked like a champ and I am following how I did this
before.  But now, that I am using this new version of 2.0.48, there's a lot
of stuff that got broken.  Maybe OSS isn't all it is cracked up to be.

I also tried the <Location> container and that didn't work either ... the
Directory and Location containers were near the other directory sections as
well.  I then moved the <Location> container to way down with the virtual
host and that didn't work.

I tried looking at all the log files for this web-site and the stdout and
stderr logs within Apache and I looked at the logs within Tomcat ... there
is no indication that anything is breaking whatsoever.

I am at my wit's end ..........   Thanks for the help anyway .........
