Subject [users@httpd] password protecting a file that has parameters
Date Thu, 04 Mar 2010 13:14:50 GMT
We are running apache 2.2.6 on  a Linux maxchine. 
 
We have the following code in our httpd.conf file
<Directory /usr/local/indico/MaKaC>
 <FilesMatch  "confRegistrationFormDisplay.py">
    AuthUserFile /WWW/httpd/conf/.htpasswd
    AuthName "HP2010 Web Site"
    AuthType Basic
    <Limit GET>
    require user organizer
    </Limit>
  </FilesMatch>
</Directory >
 
Every time someone goes to http://www1.weizmann.ac.il/MaKaC/confRegistrationFormDisplay.py
the person is indeed asked for a user name and password.  However, http://www1.weizmann.ac.il/MaKaC/confRegistrationFormDisplay.py
really takes parameters e.g.
http://www1.weizmann.ac.il/MaKaC/confRegistrationFormDisplay.py?confid=2
and what I really want to do is require a password only for certain parameter values. So
http://www1.weizmann.ac.il/MaKaC/confRegistrationFormDisplay.py?confid=2 would require a user
and password but
http://www1.weizmann.ac.il/MaKaC/confRegistrationFormDisplay.py?confid=3would not require
a user and password.
When I tried adding ?confid=3 to the <FilesMatch> directive, it did not work.  
Is there any way to do this?
 
thanks for any information.
