Subject Re: [users@httpd] mod_authz_ldap - Authenticating users in Apache
Date Mon, 17 Oct 2011 15:48:30 GMT
I did this using a <Directory> directive--you can put your LDAP auth stuff there and
apply it to the top-level file system directory of your application. Users won't be able to
bypass that. (I'm assuming that you're currently using a <Location> directive and that
your entire application lives in a single directory structure.)

This will generally work for what you want to do--you didn't provide enough information in
your post to provide a response specific to your situation.
