NCSA User Authorization Blocking Me Out

NCSA User Authorization Blocking Me Out

Post by Art Urb » Thu, 04 May 1995 04:00:00

I have created the appropriate htpasswd file, put myself in it, and gave
myself a password. I then protected a single directory requiring me as
the required user. In Netscape (just in case its relevant) I navigate
to the directory, I am correctly prompted for my user/pass, but even
though I enter it correctly, I am denied access.

Got any ideas?

1. Server Side Includes with User Authorization (NCSA AuthUserFile)

I've not been able to get individual authorization (AuthUserFile) to work
_in combination with_ server side includes. Separately, each work
fine, but when used together, after I respond to the authorization
dialogs, I get a File Selection Box prompting me to "Save As (type
text/x-server-parsed-html", rather than to display it in my browser.
(If I do save the file, it is the correct HTML file.)

I really would appreciate help with this.
Details follow. This server is pretty much vanilla with respect to
config files other than what I've mentioned.

        NCSA httpd 1.4
        htpasswd from version httpd _1.3_
        SunOS 4.1.3
        Netscape 1.1b3 and Mosaic 2.4 (same results)


Directory /some/subdir/of/our/DOCROOT>
AllowOverride None
AuthUserFile /some/other/place/.htpasswd
AuthGroupFile /dev/null
AuthName By Password
AuthType Basic
<Limit GET>
        require user someUserName

srm.conf: (Note we use ".html" rather than ".shtml" for SSI.)

# If you want to use server side includes, or CGI outside
# ScriptAliased directories, uncomment the following lines.
AddType text/x-server-parsed-html .html

myHost - someUserName [02/Jun/1995:19:35:29 -0400] "GET /some/subdir/of/our/DOCROOT/file.html HTTP/1.0" 200 4601
