#1: PHP_AUTH_* doesn"t work on Apache?

Posted on 2007-11-06 00:33:38 by yawnmoth

I was trying to test the following PHP script and am having some
difficulty:

<?php
if (empty($_SERVER['PHP_AUTH_USER']) ||
empty($_SERVER['PHP_AUTH_PW']))
{
header('WWW-Authenticate: Basic realm="Admin Control Panel"');
header('HTTP/1.0 401 Unauthorized');
exit;
}

echo 'PHP_AUTH_USER:
'.htmlspecialchars($_SERVER['PHP_AUTH_USER']).'
';
echo 'PHP_AUTH_PW: '.htmlspecialchars($_SERVER['PHP_AUTH_PW']);
?>

When I try it on Abyss web server what happens is that I enter "test"
as my username / password and then it echoes them back to me. On
Apache, it just keeps prompting me for the password. It's as though
PHP_AUTH_* is never being set. Any ideas as to why this is and what
I'd need to do to fix it?

I know, I know... personal plug = bad taste.... However, I have done
some work with basic auth through apache/php and did a quick write up:

Most likely, your PHP is configured as CGI/FastCGI. HTTP
authentication, on the other hand, is only supported if PHP is
configured as an Apache module. Documentation says it quite clearly:

The HTTP Authentication hooks in PHP are only available when
it is running as an Apache module and is hence not available
in the CGI version.

http://www.php.net/features.http-auth

Another possibility is that your Apache installation does not have an
authorization module.
