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?

Cheers,

-John
