Subject [users@httpd] Apache 2.2.0 and Basic AuthType
Date Fri, 06 Jan 2006 16:11:40 GMT
Hi Group,

I cannot get Basic AuthType to work with Apache 2.2.0.  Has something 
changed between versions, like I have to uncomment something.

I am not going any special just a simple Basic Auth
<Directory "folder_name">
  AuthType Basic
  AuthName "Login"
  AuthUserFile /usr/local/httpd/pwd/users.pwd
  Require valid-user

When you access the folder it does not prompt the user to login, just 
displays the forbidden(403) error message right away.

If I turn off Basic AuthType and "allow from all" everything works.
