RE: How do I disable PAM?



Thanks for the quick response.

>> Did you know that you can configure PAM to use /etc/passwd?
How do I do this? I didnt find answer to this on HOWTO.

I don't know whether the above will help me. My situation is:

I have a Apache2 configuration which does htaccess based authentication to
give read/write 
access to a particular directory. Even if the user enters correct
userid/passwd combination, the 
access  to a directory is being denied. I believe this is because my system
uses PAM for user 
authentication. To fix this, I suppose I need to compile Apache with
mod_auth_pam ( I am not
sure whether the current mod_auth_pam will work on Apache2) 

I don't want to go through all this because I am just building a demo system
and I want 
to keep everything simple.

You will need to replace all programs that use PAM with versions that do not
use PAM.  For example, if your login program uses PAM, then you will need to
get a version that does not use PAM.

To find out if a particular program uses PAM try:
	ldd programname
for example, notice that libpam is in the list returned by ldd for my login
program:
	$ ldd /bin/login
	        libcrypt.so.1 => /lib/libcrypt.so.1 (0x2aac4000)
	        libpam.so.0 => /lib/libpam.so.0 (0x2aaf2000)
	        libdl.so.2 => /lib/libdl.so.2 (0x2aafa000)
	        libpam_misc.so.0 => /lib/libpam_misc.so.0 (0x2aafe000)
	        libc.so.6 => /lib/libc.so.6 (0x2ab02000)
	        /lib/ld-linux.so.2 => /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0x2aaab000)

Did you know that you can configure PAM to use /etc/passwd?
