Re: Apache::AuthCookieDBI and SecretKeyFile
- Actually, with a little bit of help and a little config tweaking I got
1. created separate include files for the Perl directives and the
Location/ Directory directives. one is in the main server config ( Perl
directives) and the other is part of the VH config.
2. realized that part of the problem with the testing setup was that
/LOGIN was also considered protected because of the PerSetDirectory
being set to / ... changing that to /logintest fixed it, and I can now
log into the sample part of the site.
I'll need to make a few changes from another thread to finish the
install of this, namely aliasing the /LOGIN Location to something
'outside' of the docroot ( per a thread on Apache::AuthCookie ).
thanks for the help
