Hello guys,

Be patient with me I am new in Apache.

"RequestHeader set X-REMOTE-USER %{REMOTE_USER}s" can you tell me why it's not working in mod_headers ?

The goal is to add username(In other product using Apache) through HTTP header.

As you can see X-REMOTE-USER is (null).

Any ideas ?

Dependig on the context REMOTE_USER is not always set.

See http://httpd.apache.org/docs/current/mod/mod_rewrite.html#rewritecond scroll down to point 5 or search for REMOTE_USER

But is a bit risky to trust REMOTE_USER. Not every browser does set this variable correctly with every request.
