Subject [users@httpd] require directives present and no Authoritative handler
Date Thu, 15 Feb 2007 01:07:24 GMT
I am running Apache version 2.2.4.   Having fun too thanks.

Currently have a simple setup - HTTP and SSL are working properly.

I added basic authentication and i seem to be stuck with
the error in the subject.

.htaccess contains
    AuthName "stuf"
    AuthType Basic
    AuthUserFile /http/conf/theusers
    require valid-users

httpd prompts for the username/password and when a valid user
is entered i get the error listed the subject in the error.logs.

Invalid users get 'user not found'.   So, it makes the
determination between valid and invalid users.  Just does
not seem to recognize a valid user/pass combo.

I read the Nov, 2006 email and response regarding the error msg.
Not sure that i need this link, I am using FC6.

httpd -l  lists mod_auth_basic but not mod_auth itself.
could that be the problem???

i am sifting through the setup one more time -
anyone run into this before?
