I’m trying to switch from basic authentication to
digest. I’m working in Firefox, which is why.
I’m using mod_auth_mysql for most of the account.
login.php> Logged in as Basic
AuthName "The space"
require group agroup
logout.php> Want to call a script protected by
AuthName "The Space"
Require user nonexistent
To log off, I’m using:
//* commented out right now
In the .htaccess file I have:
In the domain error log I
client used wrong authentication scheme `Basic': /path/force_logout.php,
Then a popup window opens.
When I type the wrong
user/password, in the error log I get:
user `b' in realm `The Space' not found: /path/logout.php, referer: https://domain/path
Does anyone know how to
switch between authentication type from a script? I’m was thinking setRequestHeader
In phpinfo() on a script in
the same directory, I have:
HTTP Request GET /path/file
(Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:18.104.22.168) Gecko/2008120122 Firefox/3.0.5
username="user", realm="My Site", nonce="value",
uri="script", algorithm=MD5, response="value", qop=auth,
What I’m not sure is
what the server is looking at. The authorization value in the client
header? Is that dictating what should happen. Httpd is complaining wrong
Authentication Scheme, which makes me think server side Authenticate header,
which is what I was trying for a while until I realized I was on the client.
Can I change the headers and
it will work? Is this the right thing to do?
I dabbled a little with
setting different Authorization header values.
But, I need a break and
could use some advice.
