You're trying to do Digest authentication with a Basic authn configuration
by just switching AuthType.  You need an AuthDBDUserRealmQuery, and
you'll need to populate your database with md5 digests.  See the digest
authn documentation.

(one advantage of DBD is you can use the same table for both types
of authn.  Just use different columns for Basic and Digest entries).
