Subject (urgent!!!)authorization required in tomcat working with apache
Date Thu, 01 Jan 1970 00:00:00 GMT
Hi all

Hi all

the problem is

i have .htaccess file which checks for the users against a database to 
restrict access to particular directories served by apache

after installing tomcat and running it under apache, i tried to copy the 
.htaccess file in the apache-tomcat config file to have the same restriction 
as in apache. It doesnt seem to work, apache doesnt seem to recognise the 
.htaccess file in the /webapps directory.

the access restriction should be common for both apache and tomcat, i dunno 
how to proceed and am a bit frustrated

it would be great if some one could help!!

thx in advance
