#3394 closed defect (worksforme)

login is not possible via webform, only via apache conf

Reported by: michael.stuhr@… Owned by: mgood
Priority: normal Component: AccountManagerPlugin
Severity: normal Keywords:
Cc: Trac Release: 0.10


I'm using !0.10.3 and AccountManager 0.1.3dev-r3857 and TracWebAdmin 0.1.2dev-r5911 and am using htpasswd file authentication.

i've had it running but now i messed sth. up it seems, so i uninstalled all plugins and reinstalled all again.

I've followed every step that is described here, but i'm getting a 500 server error.

only when i setup my apache.conf (sites-enabled) like:

<Location "/project/trac/login">
## disable remaining items for simple webbasedlogin
	AuthType Basic
	AuthName "Project Trac"
	AuthUserFile "/var/project/passwd"
	Require valid-user

i can login, and change my settings etc. (except new users: i cannot add users) so i'm stuck with the old browser based auth which is ok for now, but no new users is a critical thing to me.

I'm attaching my trac.ini

Right, Apache runs its authentication before Trac has any say in the matter. If you want to not use Apache for auth, don't use Apache for auth.

Check the Apache error log.

Premature end of script headers: trac.cgi, referer:

When i disable apache-auth.

You likely have the CGI script configured incorrectly, however I no longer support CGI deployments. Please use a more modern option such as FastCGI or mod_python.
