Subject [users@httpd] "Require group" help required
Date Mon, 21 Feb 2011 09:12:03 GMT
Dear Apache Users,

I have been looking at a problem for so many hours now that I think it 
has made me blind.

The below configuration is intended to restrict access to /admin-cgi/ to 
members of the group "admin", which is defined in a plain text file, 
whilst users and passwords are in a DBM file.

The problem is that members of other groups are getting access to this 
directory. Changing "Require group ..." to a non-existent group also has 
no effect.

As far grep shows, and memory servers, this directory and location are 
not mentioned elsewhere in the httpd configuration.

Any help appreciated

Thanks in anticipation
