access restriction

Hello all,

I am an Apache neophyte and the docs on this thing are giving me a

I've got Apache running with all the aliases where I want them and my cgi's
are all working as they should. So far, so good.

Now, what I am having trouble understanding is how to go about the

I would like to restrict access to certain directories.

The layout will be like this:

/ourorg                                    #open to public viewing
      | /members                           #Requires mbrid & PW
               | /boardmem                 #Requires brdid & PW
                         | /officers       #Requires offid & PW

I assume I must create a text file with the appropriate IDs & PWs for each
directory. My questions are:

What should these files be named and where are they best placed. Also, what
entries must be made in the main conf file(s) to accomplish this?


The numbers we are talking about here are under 100 for members and
considerably less for the other categories so file size and the time
required to query the auth files should not be an issue.

Any and all help will be greatly appreciated.



1. Cern-httpd has access restriction function?


We are still using the cern-httpd on alpha station(Digital Unix).
I'm wondering if cern-httpd has also a function like using
.htaccess in apache which pops up a user-password window if
I want to read file or enter the directory in the restricted
area. If there is a way, please let me know or tell me
where I can find a document related to these.
If there is no that kind of function in cern-httpd, I think
I have to change our web server to apache which would take
time a little bit.
