version 3.31


This document serves to answer the most frequently asked questions about Apache::AuthCookie.

How can I protect an entire site (/) with Apache::AuthCookie?

You have to give an Apache "require" directive that applies to all requests for except for your login handler. The easiest way to do this is to override the auth handlers for your login script. For example, if your login handler is "/LOGIN", then you need to use something like the following:

 <Location />
   AuthType My::AuthCookieHandler
   AuthName Whatever
   PerlAuthenHandler My::AuthCookieHandler->authenticate
   PerlAuthzHandler My::AuthCookieHandler->authorize
   require valid-user
 <Location /LOGIN>
   PerlAuthenHandler Apache2::Const::OK
   PerlAuthzHandler Apache2::Const::OK
