Product Versionv2.2.1 
Summary0000352: file based authentication broken in 2.2.11
DescriptionFile based authentication with settings like

AuthType Basic
Require valid-user
AuthUserFile d:/internet/apache22/conf/.htpasswd

fails with errors of the form

[Tue May 12 16:10:49 2009] [crit] [client] configuration error: couldn't check access. No groups file?: /jsl/

The failure may be correct, but the error message is bogus. It appears to be caused by the code in server.c below line 182. The 2.3 trunk code drops the !ap_auth_type(r) checks which appear to be spurious.

The definition of ap_run_auth_checker seems to be well hidden. Can you locate it in the source tree? grep -i can not.

TagsNo tags attached.
