Subject RE: Help writting a module for Apache.
Date Mon, 29 May 2000 14:20:00 GMT
The script is inside a password protected directory, so if I can access the
script, it means I sent a correct username and password (right?). The
"AUTHORIZATION" key inside %ENV doesn't exist.. There is a
$ENV{'AUTH_TYPE'}, it contains "basic".. I tested it on apache 1.3.6 and
1.3.3..
