Re: mod_auth_pam problems



It sounds to me like your problem is really with apache at this point, not 
pam.

I'm not much of an apache hacker, but I do do some stuff with it... I seem 
to recall that the " AllowOverride AuthConfig" line should go inside of a 
<directory> ... </directory>.

Hope this helps,
Jim
