Subject [users@httpd] Digest auth and password files
Date Sat, 19 May 2007 20:16:00 GMT
I have a directory set upon my Apache server so that it can be accessed 
at home without a password, but if I'm "outside" then I get prompted for 
a userid and password. I use Digest authentication because I don't want 
to bother with an SSL certificate. This is for my own household use, no 
corporate secrets etc. :-)

Apache 2.2.4-2 on Linux Fedora Core 6

Is there a way for Apache to use the same userid/password file that is 
used when I log on to the Linux system or do I *have* to create a new 
password file just for Apache users?

If that's the case, is there a way to keep them in synch so that if I 
change my password for Linux access, that same password can be used for 
the web site/directory access?

Thank you
