Subject RE: [users@httpd] .htaccess help
Date Fri, 27 May 2005 13:57:57 GMT
I'm a bit confused about what you want to do.  I gather that you want to 
password protect a directory, but do you want Apache to issue an HTTP Basic 
authentication challenge (the little password box that your browser displays, 
separate from the web page), or to redirect to a PHP page that will do your 
custom login (therefore having nothing at all to do with .htaccess), or to 
require a double login, one HTTP Basic and one your custom login?
