Subject RE: [users@httpd] Help with Digest Authentication - PROBLEM SOLVED!
Date Wed, 02 Nov 2005 22:17:10 GMT
Dear Group,

Thank you. 

I took your advice and I did the following.

1) I stopped using the AuthDigestDomain field. It doesn't seem to do
anything for me.
2) I changed the AuthName to PrivateArea  (notice there is no space).
3) I added the user leo to the htdigusers file with a realm of PrivateArea
4) Finally, (and this is important) I changed the rights of the files in the
private directory so that people other than the owner can read them (644).

Thank you all.

Leo P.

In your first post you said you had:

   AuthName "private area"

which is it really using?  The string configured as the AuthName must 
exactly match the "realm" string passed to htdigest otherwise auth will 
fail.  I'd get rid of the AuthDigestDomain setting from the config as it 
doesn't make much difference.
