Subject [users@httpd] AuthBasic - Adding one Exception
Date Fri, 09 Oct 2009 07:24:51 GMT
Hi All,

I am using Apache configured with mod_auth_basic module. I added the
AuthType Basic and other related information in <Location />.
This is protecting all accesses to all locations in WebServer. Now i want to
add one exception for a particular page /xyz, if it is accessed from a
particular host abc
I tried putting a separate <Location /xyz> and used Allow, Require and
Satisy Any directives. It did not work and still asks for credentials. Is
there a way to allow this kind of exception? Please advice.

This is what am using now
<Location />
AuthType Basic
AuthName TEST
AuthUserFile "location to user file"
Require valid-user
<Location /xyz>
    Require valid-user
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from abc
    Satisfy Any

Thanks in advance

Prasanna Ram
