That pages works for me, but if you're using php, just recompile php with  oracle library support
(assuming you've installed the libraries from oracle's website) and you can access the db
from your scripts.

Subject: Re: [users@httpd] Authentication/Authorization using HTTP Server

Well i did try to access the link http://oskin.ru/mod_auth_oracle.html, but
the page did not come up.
I did find that there are modules for mysql & postgresql, but the
application is running using oracle 10g.
Authentication would be implemented in httpd by using custom made php
script/pages.
we need to eliminate the weblogic from authen/authoriz and have them in
httpd & db.
hope this helps..
