Subject [users@httpd] Satisfy any & Basic authorization
Date Thu, 15 Jan 2009 13:51:57 GMT
Hi all,

After some digging in the Apache docs I managed to come up with the
following configuration snippet to secure my whole server excluding one

<Location /proxyserver>
  Order deny,allow
  Allow from all
  Satisfy any

<Location />
  AuthType Basic
  AuthName "myserver"
  AuthUserFile /path/to/userfile
  AuthGroupFile /path/to/groupfile
  Require group mygroup

Now for some reason the "/proxyserver" location still asks for a
user/password, but allows entry nonetheless. I get a pop-up three times
which I can just cancel and then I can access the page.

Any idea how to avoid this? I need to access that location
programmatically and I get confronted with an authorization which I
don't want to handle in my code... 

Kind Regards,
