Please download and compile Apache directly from

Apache as distributed from this site never has and
never will authenticate out of /etc/passwd.  However,
some hacked versions of Apache distributed by other
vendors may do this.  In particular, I have seen reports
of the Cobalt Cube version of Apache being modified to
authenticate from /etc/passwd.

Thanks for using Apache!
