Subject RE: [users@httpd] Problem with mod_authn_dbm after upgrading from 2.0 to 2.2
Date Wed, 21 Feb 2007 16:09:01 GMT
Thanks Owen

I thought I had!  I should have included the .htaccess sample that
generates the error:

AuthType Basic
AuthName "Admin"
AuthBasicProvider dbm
AuthDBMUserFile "/home/httpd/notintree/password"
Require valid-user

Maybe I'm just being daft - if so I need a steer



> All passwords, groups etc are in a GDBM file.

one of the main changes between 2.0 and 2.2 is in area of authentication
and authorization. It has been sustantailly refactored with many changes
to module names and directive syntax. Start at and read
