Dear All,

Our company need to setup an Apache authentication based on an existing MySQL users Database. The requirements are the following:

- Use a Web Server based authentication (for security centralization)
- Use a existing MySQL Database (used by other applications) with username field and a password field
- Use the company designed form for Logging
- Use Cookies based sessions

We currently use apache 2.2 on a windows 2003 server for this site. I'd like to setup this authentication. The Mod_auth_form seam to be the good solution but doen't exist yet for Apache 2.2. Does someone have a good advice for me ? is there other solutions ?

Dear James,

Thank you for the reply, I will try to use this module.
But with this, I have to use another module (maybe usertrack)
to build a web based form authentication, rigth ?

The good thing with mod_auth_form is that all is integrated, login form,
redirection to the login form when session expire, etc ...

Is it possile to do this with mod_auth_mysql and another module ?
