Subject Re: [users@httpd] per location group based authentication
Date Fri, 08 Jul 2011 05:39:18 GMT
Thanks for the response. That seems doable, however, I wasn't able to
figure out how to use  an (environment) variable with Require
directive?  I couldn't tell that from the docs
http://httpd.apache.org/docs/current/en/env.html that this is in fact
possible; and if it is, how to reference the variable.
