Hi All,

We want to display custom error pages based on the user directory. This
page will only disply when they dont have access to see that page.
Obviously we are using htaccess directory access file. I was wondering how
we can do it in apache? Also I want to develop an interface that validates
a user to this htaccess encripted password.

How do we approach these issues?

Thanks in Adv for you help.


Have a look at the apache site (httpd.apache.org). There is a directive you 
can add to each directory stanza (or global) that defines what error page to 
display.  Check their docs, but I think it is something like:
ErrorDocument 404 /path_to/file

You may also want to use the config file directory stanzas to do your access 
control instead of leaving the htaccess file in the document area.

If by "develop an interface" you mean the pop-up login box, sorry, I can't 
If you want different errors in different directories, then put an .htaccess in the directory and link it to the error page as above:

ErrorDocument XXX /path_to/file

For XXX use the correct error number.  404 is a PAGE NOT FOUND.  You wanted a 401 AUTHORIZATION REQUIRED.

Mostly only the 400s are used.  You can check your logs to see if any particular errors show up more than others or several times.

Client Request Errors
400 Bad Request
401 Authorization Required
402 Payment Required (not used yet)
403 Forbidden
404 Not Found
405 Method Not Allowed
406 Not Acceptable (encoding)
407 Proxy Authentication Required
408 Request Timed Out
409 Conflicting Request
410 Gone
411 Content Length Required
412 Precondition Failed
413 Request Entity Too Long
414 Request URI Too Long
415 Unsupported Media Type
