Apache2_4::AuthCookieDBI - A subclass of Apache2::AuthCookieDBI that implements a "group" authorization provider for Apache 2.4.x.


 # In httpd.conf or .htaccess:
 #   Configure as you would with Apache2::AuthCookieDBI, but leave out
 #   the PerlAuthzHandler directive and add the following when using
 #   "require group":

 PerlModule Apache2_4::AuthCookieDBI
 PerlAddAuthzProvider group Apache2_4::AuthCookieDBI->group

 <Location /www/>
   require group admin


Apache2_4::AuthCookieDBI provides an Apache 2.4.x-compatible authorization provider for handling "group" authorization requirements.

This module is a subclass of Apache2::AuthCookieDBI. All the methods for Apache2::AuthCookieDBI still work for this module as well. The only method that this class overrides is group.

This module is for mod_perl version 2 and Apache version 2.4.x. If you are running Apache 2.0.0-2.2.x, refer to Apache2::AuthCookieDBI.

Make sure your mod_perl is at least 2.0.9, with StackedHandlers, MethodHandlers, Authen, and Authz compiled in.


The implementation herein is based on Apache2::AuthCookieDBI's group method with heavy inspiration from the sample authz_handler in Apache2_4::AuthCookie by Michael Schout. Huge thanks to Michael Schout for his documentation on the changes to authorization under Apache 2.4.x.
