in reply to Re: PHP_AUTH_USER type authentication
in thread PHP_AUTH_USER type authentication

Does it mean that there is no Perl equivalent for this?
I like to get username/password and authenticate the user. I don't use any other module to authenticate. I can definitely use it if required. I am not familiar with authentication modules, so please point me in appropriate direction.

    Hi artist

    In this case, Apache does the authentication for you so you don't need the password part. You may use the username part for other purpose such as custom authorization. You need no module for this authentication type, just Read The Fine Manual from Apache site:

    Authentication, Authorization and Access Control

    I never understand myself why PHP provides such thing.
