# AddLanguage allows you to specify the language of a document. You can
# then use content negotiation to give a browser a file in a language
# it can understand.  Note that the suffix does not have to be the same

# Redirect allows you to tell clients about documents which used to exist in

# Aliases: Add here as many aliases as you need (with no limit). The format is

# ServerType is either inetd, or standalone.
ServerType standalone
# If you are running from inetd, go to "ServerAdmin".
# Port: The port the standalone listens to. For ports < 1023, you will
# need httpd to be run as root initially.

# HostnameLookups: Log the names of clients or just their IP numbers
#   e.g.   www.apache.org (on) or (off)HostnameLookups on
# If you wish httpd to run as a different user or group, you must run
# httpd as root initially and it will switch.  
# User/Group: The name (or #number) of the user/group to run httpd as.
#  On SCO (ODT 3) use User nouser and Group nogroup
#  On HPUX you may not be able to use shared memory as nobody, and the
#  suggested workaround is to create a user www and use that user.

# ServerName allows you to set a host name which is sent back to clients for
# your server if it's different than the one the program would get (i.e. use
# "www" instead of the host's real name).
# Note: You cannot just invent host names and hope they work. The name you

#CacheNegotiatedDocs: By default, Apache sends Pragma: no-cache with each
# document that was negotiated on the basis of content. This asks proxy
# servers not to cache the document. Uncommenting the following line disables
# this behavior, and proxies will be allowed to cache the documents.
# Timeout: The number of seconds before receives and sends time out
Timeout 300
# KeepAlive: Whether or not to allow persistent connections (more than
# one request per connection). Set to "Off" to deactivate.
KeepAlive On
# MaxKeepAliveRequests: The maximum number of requests to allow
# during a persistent connection. Set to 0 to allow an unlimited amount.
# We reccomend you leave this number high, for maximum performance.

# KeepAliveTimeout: Number of seconds to wait for the next request
KeepAliveTimeout 15
# Server-pool size regulation.  Rather than making you guess how many
# server processes you need, Apache dynamically adapts to the load it
# sees --- that is, it tries to maintain enough server processes to
# handle the current load, plus a few spare servers to handle transient# load spikes (e.g.,
multiple simultaneous requests # from a single Netscape browser).
# It does this by periodically checking how many servers are waiting
# for a request.  If there are fewer than MinSpareServers, it creates
# a new spare.  If there are more than MaxSpareServers, some of the# spares die off.  These
values are probably OK for most sites ---
MinSpareServers 5
MaxSpareServers 250
# Number of servers to start --- should be a reasonable ballpark figure.
StartServers 5
# Limit on total number of servers running, i.e., limit on the number
# of clients who can simultaneously connect --- if this limit is ever
# reached, clients will be LOCKED OUT, so it should NOT BE SET TOO LOW.
# It is intended mainly as a brake to keep a runaway server from taking# Unix with it as it
spirals down...
MaxClients 250 
#MaxClients 150
# MaxRequestsPerChild: the number of requests each child process is
#  allowed to process before the child dies.
#  The child will exit so as to avoid problems after prolonged use when
#  Apache (and maybe the libraries it uses) leak.  On most systems, this
#  isn't really needed, but a few (such as Solaris) do have notable leaks
#  in the libraries.

# Listen: Allows you to bind Apache to specific IP addresses and/or

#Listen 3000
# VirtualHost: Allows the daemon to respond to requests for more than one
# server address, if your server machine is configured to accept IP packets
# for multiple addresses. This can be accomplished with the ifconfig 
# alias flag, or through kernel patches like VIF.

According to the below entries in my access.conf:

 AuthUserFile /opt/local/etc/httpd/passwd/passwd

Users should be able to: 

Get denied complete access to the websites document root (http://timecard/)

Get into and able to view the index of http://timecard/cgi-bin directory

Get prompted for a password authentication for http://timecard/test/ 

But instead what happens:

Every yahoo gets complete, non-authenticated access to http://timecard/test and 
access to http://timecard

Browsing access to http://timecard/cgi-bin/ is forbidden.

It is almost as if the access.conf file is completely ignored.

Unfortunately, http://timecard is on a non-accessable intranet.
I've been pulling my hair out.  I copied these conf files from another apache 1.2.0 server.
 User authentication worked just AOK for that one.

The ownership of the conf files was set at root/other on that other server, but I tried that
as well.

I must have some sort of setting or flag somewhere that basically tells apache to forget about
the access.conf file.
