Subject [users@httpd] mod_rewrite and mod_auth ordering issue
Date Thu, 23 Jun 2005 14:48:31 GMT
	I want to use mod_auth for apache2 to restrict access to a directory on
a website. I also want to use mod_rewrite to force such authentication
to be over https. I have the following in dir/.htaccess:

	RewriteEngine On
	RewriteCond %{HTTPS} !^on$
	RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://%{HTTP_HOST}/dir/$1

	AuthType Basic
	AuthName "private thingum"
	require user username

However, what happens is that i'm prompted for the username and password
before i'm redirected to ssl, which is useless. Is there any way i can
get the rewrite to happen before the auth? Thanks,
