But if you want to use Apache 1.2 = with Satisfy and FCGI, watch for this: If I try something like: Alias /fcgi-bin/ /usr/local/httpd/fcgi-bin/ <Location /fcgi-bin/tiny-perl-fcgi> ForceType fastcgi-script </Location> ... AppClass for tiny-perl-fcgi goes in here... <Directory /usr/local/httpd/fcgi-bin> AuthType Basic Satisfy Any AuthName foobar order deny,allow deny from all allow from .mycompany.com AuthUserFile /usr/local/httpd/htpasswd require valid-user </Directory> THEN: accessing /fcgi-bin/tiny-perl-fcgi is responded to with a request for = authentication. Accessing other (non FCGI) files under /fcgi-bin are = not challenged. Only the FCGI app is incorrectly restricted. Just FYI, haven't yet a clue what's happening (other than it appears = that the newly-added Satisfy directive has an odd interaction with the = fastcgi module). Stopped my migration to Apache 1.2.
