Re: [PHP] WWW-Authenticate problem in Apache

2002-04-02 Thread Billy S Halsey

Hi,

I've never tried requiring authentication via a header (only through 
httpd.conf or .htaccess), but here's my best guess:

You're telling it what type of authentication to do, and you're telling 
it what realm to authenticate to, but:

- You're not telling it what to require, and you're not telling it where 
to find that info.

For example, with the httpd.conf format, you would have something like:

Directory /var/www/htdocs/foo
AuthType Basic
AuthName My Realm
AuthUserFile /var/www/auth/htpasswd
require valid-user
/Directory

Any reason you're not using .htaccess?

/bsh/

 Hi everybody,
 
 I try to install Apache 3.1.2 + PHP-4.1.2 on RedHat 7.2.
 
 All seems to be fine but when I write a PHP to test the authenticate.
 ?php
 header(WWW-Authenticate: Basic realm=\My Realm\);
 ?
 Whatever I input to the login box, the failed, retry message comes out and
 it becomes a dead loop - login - retry - login ..
 
 Can anyone help me ??
