Subject [users@httpd] Authentication Issues
Date Thu, 01 Jan 2004 19:41:30 GMT
To recap: I have Tomcat 4.1.29 and Apache 2.0.48 under Win2K and one virtual
host called:   This gets served up under Apache/Tomcat
correct and all Servlets, JavaBeans, and JSP's work correctly.  Now, I
followed the directions from the How-To Apache 2.0.x docs  on how to
authenticate a user for a web-site/directory.   Notice that this web-site is
under Tomcat and not under Apache.  According to all the dozens of other
docs I have seen on the web, and according to the O'Reilly Apache book ...
what I have done is 100% correct!

However, after dozens of minor changes (and an Apache restart after each
one), every browser that I use when I go to this web-site refuses to ask me
for a username/password dialog box.  The funny thing is that an older
version of 2.0.x works fine, and this version does not.

I'd like to know what I am doing wrong when all the documentation I have
read shows that I have done everything correct.
Here is my httpd.conf virtual host configuration.

<VirtualHost *>
 DocumentRoot c:/web/jakarta-tomcat-4.1.29/webapps/secure
 <Location "/*.jsp">
  JkUriSet worker ajp13:localhost:8009
 ErrorLog logs/secure-error_log
 CustomLog logs/secure-access_log common
 DirectoryIndex default.jsp index.jsp
 <Directory "c:/web/jakarta-tomcat-4.1.29/webapps/secure">
  AuthName Admins
  AuthType Basic
  AuthUserFile c:/web/Apache2/security/passwords.file
  AuthGroupFile c:/web/Apache2/security/groups.file
  Require group admins

Any help would be much appreciated.   Thanks.
