Subject [users@httpd] authentication and mod_proxy
Date Thu, 02 Jun 2005 18:37:41 GMT
I have Apache configured as a proxy, and I'm using a Basic
Authentication scheme within the <Directory proxy:*> container.  The
problem is that once authenticated, the authenticated user id is not
passed off to the proxied server.  How can I do this?

Example config on proxy server:

<Directory proxy:https://somesite>
  SSLOptions +StdEnvVars +CompatEnvVars
  Order allow,deny
  Allow from all
  AuthName "Site Access"
  AuthType Basic
  AuthPAM_Enabled ON
  require user foo

I authenticate as "foo" but the proxied server does not receive the id.
