I have been banging my head against a way trying to get this lot
working for a few days now and am now very fustrated.
Firstly I managed to use 'dbmmanage' to create 'Berkley DB' style
crypted htpasswd files. All works ok. The problem is that I want to
use GDBM 1.7.3 to be compatible between software.
I am now in the position where I can create and read GDBM files in
Apache (dbmmanage), Perl and PHP/FI.
The problem is when I come to testing the authorisation process using
the AuthDBMUserfile directive, the server won't recognise the user and
password combination and simply logs 'could not open dbm auth file' in
the error log.
I have checked the mod_auth_dbm.c source and found the reference to
the 'ndbm.h' file. When I installed the GDBM I ran the make
install-compat routine which installed these into the correct areas.
Please, please has anyone else tried / completed this kind of set-up,
if so would it be possible for you to help me out on what is causing
PS. Can you please copy any reply to my email address, thanks.
