Hiya, any help would be greatly appreciated (before I send this server airborne.)
I'm trying to set up Apache 2 with mod_auth_pam (or, for that matter, anything that will let me use unix passwords to authenticate to a page.) mod_auth_external won't do, as I've run into inexplicable freezes compiling. I have the following scenario: -user www is a member of group shadow -/etc/master.passwd and /etc/spwd.db are owned by group shadow, and chmoded 640 (just for testing). -All other apache settings (including loading mod_auth_pam.so) seem ok -Users who need to access directory 'foo' are members of group webauth My /etc/pam.d/httpd: auth required pam_unix.so service=system-auth debug account required pam_unix.so service=system-auth debug My httpd.conf entry: <Directory /usr2/www/www.chakraborty.ch/foo> AllowOverride none AuthPAM_Enabled on AuthType Basic AuthName "foo" require group webauth </Directory> I've also tried this using <Location>, as well as with a .htaccess under directory 'foo'. However, I am unable to access 'foo', with the usual uninformative httpd-error.log entry: [Tue Sep 23 18:00:25 2003] [error] [client ***.***.***.***] PAM: user 'john' - n ot authenticated: Authentication failure What I don't understand is why, if something like sshd can work fine with PAM, httpd doesn't let me authenticate. Has anyone ever gotten this working?
