Subject RE: [users@httpd] Cannot Get Basic Auth to Work
Date Thu, 08 Dec 2005 20:21:21 GMT
Yes, I did read the docs and used an example that I found. That is how I got
as far as I did. Unfortunately, I read the AuthType docs not AuthDBMType
docs. That is one of the areas that I did wrong. My apologies that I do not
spell as great as you and that I am not as observant as you.

HOWEVER, it still does not work!


Alias /oscadmin E:/ApacheGroup/Apache2/d/c/a
<Directory /o>
AuthType Basic
AuthDBMType DB
AuthName O
Require valid-user
AllowOverride AuthConfig Options
AuthDBMUserFile E:\ApacheGroup\Apache2\a\auth.dbm.dir
Options None
Order allow,deny
Allow from all
</Directory>


I've read both docs and always restart Apache when I make changes before
trying it with the changes. I noticed that Apache attaches .dir to the end
of the database name and I tried the file path with and without that
extension. (The docs do not specify what to use.) I usually use FireFox so I
tried with IE6 to be sure it was not a FireFox issue. (Docs say something
about browsers reading the string under compatibility notes.) Neither work.
I imagine it is something small and simple and I am going to kick myself for
it. I double-checked the loadmodule statement and it looks right.

LoadModule auth_dbm_module modules/mod_auth_dbm.so

Like I said (below) everything I put in the .htaccess file I removed. It is
only in the httpd.conf file.

What should I check next?

Mike
