Subject [users@httpd] AuthName directive
Date Tue, 23 Oct 2007 16:42:53 GMT

AuthName directive: "This directive sets the name of the 
authorization realm for a directory. This realm is given to the 
client so that the user knows which username and password to send."

I know how AuthName works in practise, but can someone please 
explain what an "authorization realm" is? I take it it is not the 
same as a directory?
