This happened with a server where I uploaded an authentication script. Example: To anybody who tried the digest example above and didn't get it to work.
If it happens, you can try the HTTP1.1 header syntax : I suggest to demand user's authentication and management to the web server (by .htaccess, ...):1. $hh) authenticate(); // usual header WWW-Authenticate ... For me the problem seemed to be the deprecated use of '\' (backslash) in the regex instead of the '$' (Dollar) to indicate a backreference.
First of all don't forget this fragment of code in your .htaccess (it's the only thing you need to make it work with mod_rewrite): First, we decode the base64 encoded string discarding the first 6 characters of "Basic " and then we do a regular validation. You can re-enable this functionality as described at your users will probably be unwilling to do this.
You should keep track of this number in a server-side file or database and regenerate it upon each successful login, so that the last number(s) become invalid.Using an invalid number might result in a 403 response or, depending on how you feel that day, a 302 to a nasty website.does not clear the authentication credentials with a 401 server response, so pressing back and then forward again will open the resource as long as the credential requirements haven't changed.The user can press the Workaround for missing Authorization header under CGI/Fast CGI Apache: Set Env If Authorization .Regardless, Note, however, that the above does not prevent someone who controls a non-authenticated URL from stealing passwords from authenticated URLs on the same server.
Both Netscape Navigator and Internet Explorer will clear the local browser window's authentication cache for the realm upon receiving a server response of 401.configure a global /logon/ directory with a .htaccess file restricted access2. fclose($hh); Quite a good solution for the logout problem: Just tell browser that it is successfully logged in! Also the results have to be trimmed off the remaining double and single quotes.Here's the working example:// function to parse the http auth headerfunction http_digest_parse($txt)Probably there's a more sophisticated way to trim the quotes within the regex, but I couldn't be bothered :-)Greets, Lars I tried example 7, and at first I couldn't get it to work. I couldn't get authentication to work properly with any of the examples.This forces a new set of credentials for a new "Realm" on your server.You just need to track the Realm name with the user/pass and change it around to something new/random as they log in and out.message to the client browser causing it to pop up a Username/Password input window.
