Subject [users@httpd] Apache 1.39: Automatically logging some users in: .htaccess: what to put in a cookie?
Date Thu, 21 Jul 2005 20:25:16 GMT


My company is using Apache 1.39 on red hat.

They have a .htaccess file set up so that if anyone wants to see a set
of  files in a directory, that user must log in.

I would like to make an exception to this rule if the user is already
logged into a JSP application we have.  If the user is logged into this
application, that application can navigate to that directory, with no
login/password prompt coming up.

I thought I would make a special account for this JSP application in
the infouser and .htaccess files.  Then, I would have the JSP
application create a cookie to automatically log itself into to that

The only thing I don't know at this point is what to write in the

I have poked around in the docs and haven't found what I needed.

If anyone knows how to do this, or if they can point me to some docs
that will give the information I would be much obliged.

Thanks much in advance
