Subject [users@httpd] problem with on Linux
Date Mon, 30 May 2005 16:00:15 GMT

This is regarding use of on Linux AS 3.0

We used used to create DBM file, using the following syntax:
$ dbmmanage -d "/home/apache2/ITC1_Installation__AB/AuthFile" adduser user2

On HP-UX, two dbm files <filename>.dir and <filename>.pag are created.
But on Linux, only the .pag file gets created.
Beacause of this, authentication fails on Linux.

For using module mod_auth_dbm,
We did following settings in httpd.conf file,
<Directory "/home/apache2/Apache64_worker/install_debug/Auth">
AuthName "Restricted Area"
AuthDBMType DB
AuthType basic
Require valid-user
AuthDBMUserFile "/home/apache2/Apache64_worker/install_debug/AuthFile"

and mod_auth_dbm gives following error:

[Mon May 30 13:10:14 2005] [error] [client] (120002)APR does not
understand this error code: could not open dbm (type DB) auth file:
[Mon May 30 13:10:14 2005] [error] [client] DBM user user1 not
found: /home/apache2/Apache64_worker/install_debug/Auth/auth_dbm.html

Please help.
