Bug#224259: apache: user not found in Basic authentication

Package: apache
Severity: important


 I have encountered the following problem: I set up Basic authentication
 in access.conf:

 <Directory /var/www/zeon/dev/admin>
 AuthType Basic
 AuthName "Passwor Required"
 AuthUserFile /etc/apache/pwd
 Require valid-user


/etc/apache/pwd contains:


Symptom: the browser pops up the authentication window, I enter the
details, but after a few tries I got an Authorization required.

In the logs:

[Wed Dec 17 13:43:26 2003] [error] user jerry not found: /dev/admin
[Wed Dec 17 13:43:27 2003] [error] user jerry not found: /dev/admin
[Wed Dec 17 13:43:27 2003] [error] user jerry not found: /dev/admin

Apache does not complain, if the /etc/apache/pwd file is missing, and
according to strace, it does not even touch it.
