Subject [users@httpd] Apache authentication
Date Wed, 03 Jan 2007 17:27:02 GMT
I am attempting to set up several websites as virtual hosts on the same
box using Apache2 on Suse Linux 10.1.  These should be set up so that
one group (call them Administrators) has access to all the sites and one
specific user for each site will have access to the sites.  To this end,
I have installed and configured AuthLDAP.  Everything works properly,
except I can't figure out the correct syntax to allow both the specific
user AND the specific group to access the web site.  If I use "require
valid-user," anyone in the LDAP directory can access the site.  If I use
"require user user1," the user can access the site, but the group can't.
If I use "require ldap-group cn=my, ou=ldap, dc=group", the group can
access it, but the specific user can't.  I could make another group that
contains all the users that need to access the site, but if the number
of sites becomes large, this will become somewhat unwieldy.  Is there
some better way of approaching this?
