Subject [users@httpd] SQL Server authentication
Date Tue, 11 Jan 2011 08:58:20 GMT


My Apache server currently uses a passwd file for authentication. I need to
change the authentication scheme so that it uses both this passwd file and a
list of usernames and passwords stored in an SQL Server database table. 

In other words, if the username and password is found in the file, or in the
database, then authentication succeeds. Obviously the latter will require me
to configure the database connection parameters, and the SQL query to
execute (with placeholders for username and password).

If it's not possible for Apache to use both a file and a database for
authentication, then if someone could explain how to configure SQL Server
database authentication (only), I'd be very grateful.
