Subject Re: [users@httpd] Activate REMOTE_USER Enviroment Variable
Date Tue, 17 Aug 2004 03:14:23 GMT


	Users will access the files in a intranet enviroment, and they are

	I just need to keep in a mysql db who where the users who accessed the
files (as the user informed by the IE in the clients).

	Thanks.
