Subject [users@httpd] Strange .htaccess password behavior
Date Fri, 31 Jul 2009 19:47:43 GMT
Hi all,

I was wondering if any of you have ever experienced a problem with .htaccess
like the one I am experiencing. To be upfront, I am running a standard
install of Mac OSX 10.5.7 with MacPorts and apache2/php5/mysql5 on a new
Quad Core Xenon MacPro. Apache version 2.2.11

When I access a password protected page, it will accept the correct username
and password. This is normal. What isn't normal is that I can also get to
the page by using the correct username and password with anything else at
the end of it!

for example:
password: helloworld
will allow access, but so will
password: helloworldthisismoretext
and anything else for that matter.

Not sure what the problem is but i've done everything I can think of to get
it NOT to work that way.

I have another server running almost the same configuration and it doesn't
have this issue at all.

Have any of you see this?
