Thanks for your reply Yuri.  I had read this already, but on re-reading
I found the reason why it wasn't working: I'm using mod_fcgi and this
doesn't pass Basic Auth properly.

I added an .htaccess file with the following:

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule .* - [E=HTTP_AUTHORIZATION:%{HTTP:Authorization},L]

Now it's working fine :)

It might be good idea to include this in the distribution.  As far as I
can see it wouldn't hurt, regardless of whether fcgi was used.
Ah but it's in there ;)


Yes, this is where I got the clue that I needed to create the .htaccess file :)

What I was suggesting is that you include such an .htaccess file with the distribution, and then people will not need to edit httpd.conf if they happen to use fcgi. And it shouldn't hurt in the case where fcgi is not used.

Note that mod_fcgi buffers the upload into memory, unfortunately.

Yes, it's a shame, although there are other advantages that fcgi brings so we stick with it.
