Subject [users@httpd] content filtering by access
Date Fri, 09 Dec 2005 18:31:45 GMT

I'm new to this forum, so I hope this question is being directed to the proper 

I run an apache server (2.0.52), and I have a number of employees here who 
access restricted pages via

<Directory ...>
AuthUserFile conf/htpasswd.users

I have had no problems implementing this.

What I would like to do is to create .php web pages, in *non-restricted* 
directories, that will have content that *is* restricted to those that pass the 
test above. For example, when an employee goes to a nonrestricted page, he/she 
sees "Hi stranger!" on the page, whereas when joe public goes there, he does not.

I'm looking at

which could be promising, but I'm unclear on what variable to check on.

Has anyone tried something like this, or know how I should proceed?
