Subject Re: [users@httpd] Rewrite REMOTE_USER environment variable
Date Tue, 23 May 2017 18:45:02 GMT

It seems to make sense that REMOTE_USER wasn't set when the rule I tried in 
htaccess ran, as that would explain RU not being set.

But, REMOTE_USER must be set by Apache, even if it is late in the sequence, so 
where/how can I get at it?
