Please note I've also tried modifying my httpd.conf to specify only specific directories for authentication without any success.
I think there may be a general misunderstanding as to how to configure w/ Apache for authentication. Evidence of this can be seen on the first page of this forum alone. Can anyone provide any insight?
I posted a similar question below. I think the problem is actually w/ Catalina and Apache. I rolled back to JBoss_2.4.4-Tomcat_3.2.3 and everything works fine (as did JBoss-2.2.1_Tomcat-3.2.1).
I've been searching the tomcat lists for info but other than a similar problem last Nov., that I couldn't find a resolution to, nada.
I'll post something over there.
