Subject RE: [users@httpd] Auth aliases problem

You can also try authenticating to PAM, and then in 


/etc/pam.d/apache2 (or httpd, I'll have to check)


You specify


Auth                      sufficient   

Account               sufficient   


Pam_ldap is part of  the nss_ldap package.


This tells PAM to authenticate with LDAP.


On your VirtualHost directive, you'll also need to add:


<Directory /var/www/myrestrictedarea>
AuthType Basic
AuthName "Restricted area for My Server"
AuthPAM_Enabled On
Require group mygroup


This should allow you to authenticate to LDAP.

Subject: [users@httpd] Auth aliases problem


I'd like to ask again about my problem: I want to make aliases for ldap
authorization with mod_authn_alias, I have set everything up correctly,
according to the documentation, enabled required module, set
"AuthBasicProvider aaa" in my configuration, and I receive error: "Unknown
Authn provider: aaa" - there is no single line in error.log, there is no
information I can google, as all forward to: "Unknown Authn provider: ldap"
and this is not the problem I experience - there is certainly other basis of
the problem.
