Subject [users@httpd] HTTP auth and custom login pages
Date Mon, 30 Jan 2006 23:37:54 GMT

We have a bunch of folders protected by  htaccess valid-user directives,
but management has decided that they want a nice login page rather than
the browser prompting for a username and password.

Is it possible to create a form page that then sends the auth
information to apache via POST or some such?     I'd hate to have to
come up with an entirely new authentication scheme.  .htaccess files are
so damn convenient.
