Subject Re: [mp2] .htaccess and User Authentication - Need Help
Date Fri, 02 Mar 2007 22:15:39 GMT

Thanks Roger, 

Going on the same lines, using Apache::AuthDBI and Apache::AuthCookieDBI

When I am trying to access the URL it gives me following error 

[error] PerlRun: `couldn't open ../htdocs/html/login.html: (Any pointers

My .htaccess file is 
 PerlModule Apache::AuthCookieDBI
 PerlSetVar WhatEverPath /
 PerlSetVar WhatEverLoginScript /cgi-perl/

My conf file is as follows
<Location /cgi-bin/>
 	AuthType Apache::AuthCookieDBI
        AuthName WhatEver
        PerlAuthenHandler Apache::AuthCookieDBI->authenticate
        #PerlAuthzHandler Apache::AuthCookieDBI->authorize
        Require valid-user
       #or you can require users:
       #require user jacob
       #You can optionally require groups.
       #require group system

	PerlSendHeader On
   #Options +FollowSymLinks
# Login location.
<Files LOGIN>
      AuthType Apache::AuthCookieDBI
      AuthName WhatEver
      SetHandler perl-script
      PerlHandler Apache::AuthCookieDBI->login
