Subject RE: [users@httpd] Are apache caching modules redudant of memcached?
Date Tue, 26 May 2009 17:56:01 GMT
Well, I use very basic authentication for apache (2.2.x), just htpasswd files and allow,deny
hosts lines. So these are the only auth/authz/authn lines I have enabled. I imagine you could
get by on these (or less) as long as Django uses its own libs or third party libs for its
database auth. access.

 

# Basic auth - general

LoadModule authn_file_module modules/mod_authn_file.so

# Allow,Deny directives

LoadModule authz_host_module modules/mod_authz_host.so

# Basic auth - require valid-user

LoadModule authz_user_module modules/mod_authz_user.so

# Basic auth - AuthType

LoadModule auth_basic_module modules/mod_auth_basic.so

Tony --

Thank you for your time and advice. I've gone ahead and commented out the modules, and haven't
encountered any problems so far. 

I'm also wondering how many of the authorization modules are necessary -- considering I have
Django doing a lot of that through the DB. But that might be another thread ... =)

Ben.
