mod_auth_pam and flatfile

The other day I found myself needing to restrict access to a web site to only users who had logins to a system … while also allowing other users, who didn’t have logins, to access.

mod_auth_pam was the solution for the users with a login … and standard ‘htpasswd’ access was the answer for the other users … but getting the two to work together was causing problems.

A bit of Googling turned up this technique that solves the problem quite nicely.

AuthPAM_Enabled on
AuthPAM_FallThrough on
AuthAuthoritative Off
AuthUserFile /path/to/htpassword
AuthType Basic
AuthName "Secure"
Require valid-user
