Drop the <LIMIT></LIMIT> directives unless you only want to protect URLs
that that requested via GET (as opposed to POST, PUT, etc.)

satisfy any


You'll also need to configure HTTP authentication so that people coming
from unknown IP addresses can be allowed in via user/password.

1. User-Authentication using the UNIX-system passwd-file with Apache HTTPd?

Hi there!

Does anybody know about a possibility to use the UNIX-system
passwd-file for user-authentication on a Apache HTTpd?

I know the CERN-server very well now, and like this feature there for
internal use of several HTML-pages.

Is there any module on the net, which satisfies my needs?

Thank you very much in advance for your help

Cheers Swen Mager
