Subject Re: [users@httpd] problem with on Linux
Date Tue, 31 May 2005 04:06:04 GMT
Hi Harish,
                Please check DBM Type of file AuthFile using command 
$file filename and accordingly set AuthDBMType in httpd.conf file. 
AuthDBMType will be either DB,GDBM, NDBM, or SDBM depending on file type.
