I am a newbie in apache, less than 2 weeks of experience. I am
trying to protect one of my directory in the web server with Basic
authentication. I am using Gentoo Linux with apache-2.0.55. I see that auth_module is loaded as a Module. I have configured the Virtual Host like this. The problem is that the login dialog box never appears in the browser and the web page is immediately displayed. The configuration I used is (from etc/apache2/httpd.conf):
CustomLog logs/anaconda.localhost.comaccess_log common
AuthName "Tiger Login:"
Require user libregeek
I am able to run the same setup in my Fedora Core 4 server. But it fails in the Gentoo Server. I can't get what had gone wrong. I searched the MARC archives, but couldn't find a workable solution.
Please help me. I am in great trouble.
I can't find anything wrong in either syslog or apache log. Any help
would be appreciable.
