Q. How can I setup Digest Authentication with Apache 2.4?
Ensure .htaccess files are allowed - check your main .conf file:
Put this in an .htaccess file:
# AuthDigestDomain /here # Not needed
Create the user file like this:
htdigest -c /etc/httpd/conf/mydigest myrealm myuser
And you'll be prompted for a password.
Things to note:
- The realm used in AuthName must match the realm on the htdigest command line.
- The file user file can be anywhere. But its not safe to put in your webtree.
- Can be in a .conf file rather than .htaccess
