Subject [users@httpd] upgrade to 2.2.3 breaks .htaccess: "require directives present and no Authoritative handler"
Date Sat, 04 Nov 2006 19:59:48 GMT
Greetings,

The following .htaccess file has been working for years under apache
2.0.x to password protect a directory:

------------------------------------------
AuthType Basic
AuthName "Password Required"
AuthUserFile /www/faith.info/authfile
------------------------------------------

Where the 'authfile' contains one line generated by the htpasswd
program:

----------------------------------------
count:gjPCIjHj9gjWQ
----------------------------------------

I just upgraded to apache 2.2.3, and now it no longer works.  The
message I get in my error log is the following:

[Sat Nov 04 14:27:32 2006] [error] [client 172.18.3.15] access to /
failed, reason: require directives present and no Authoritative handler.

I've googled excessively for an answer, but have found none.  I've
tried adding "Require valid-user" to the .htpasswd, but that does not
help.

Any ideas?

Cheers, László
