I've handled to obtain authentication a minimum of partially setup but am mystified why security is not working... During my httpd.conf apply for ssl I've....
<Directory /usr/local/apache2.2/cgi-bin/oia> SSLRequireSSL Satisfy All AuthType basic AuthName "Protected Intranet Area" AuthUserFile conf/.passwd AuthGroupFile conf/groups Require valid-user </Directory>
I actually do possess the user password within the setup so when being able to access the page via https://....../cgi-bin/oia, it will properly prompt me for that user title and password. Issue is basically make use of the same URL with http:// there is no compelling for any user title or password.
Any advice is greatly appreciated. Nikki
