Subject Re: Use form instead of AuthType Basic (pop-up windows)
Date Thu, 21 Jan 2010 17:25:37 GMT
Hello, I am sorry if I didnt explain me properly.
What I want to know is understand how use a formulary instead of AuthType
Basic. I know there are several modules that are doing this, but it is not
about using one, it is about understanding how.

I am doing my own Auth module (just to learn about it and mod_perl) and I
would like to use a form instead of pop up window, and using CGI is not an
option because I want to use Authz and Authen handlers.

What I need are the basic steps to move from AuthType Basic to use a form.

Thank you very much for all your answers,
Juan Manuel Parrilla Gutierrez
