That's kind of what I figured. I wasn't sure if it was even possible. It's been a while, but I thought I may have done something like this in the past. Something like setting PHP_AUTH_USER (in PHP: $_SERVER['AUTH_PHP_USER']) equal to the user name collected from the login script and *tricking* Apache into seeing this value set when accessing a protected realm, however, I don't think that would actually work. (works in my head, just not in reality
Anyone else ever try something like this?
