Re: hooking apache auth to unix accounts

Well, if your solaris system uses ldap auth, you're golden :). If
not, you get creative. Before we went ldap, I just plucked the user
ids and encrypted passwords from /etc/shadow every hour and put them
into a file for svn to use.

AuthUserFile /svnroot/.master-passwd

Work fine, but your solaris box may still be using crypt passwords
instead of MD5, so I don't know if that will work.

There is/was an experimental PAM apache module out there, but I don't
know if it ever worked.
