DESCRIPTION

Apache::AuthenURL::Cache implements a caching mechanism in order to speed up authentication and to reduce the usage of system resources. It must be used in conjunction with a regular mod_perl2 authentication module.

It was designed with Apache::AuthenURL in mind, but it can be used with other modules.

The module makes use of mod_perl2 stacked handlers.

CONFIGURATION OPTIONS

The following variables can be defined within the configuration of Directory, Location, or Files blocks or within .htaccess files:

AuthenCache_CacheTime

This directive contains the number of seconds before the cache is expired. Default is an indefinite time limit.

AuthenCache_Encrypted

If this directive is set to 'Off', passwords are not encrypted. Default is 'On', ie passwords use standard Unix crypt.

AuthenCache_NoPasswd

If this directive is set to 'On', passwords may be zero length. Default is 'Off', ie passwords may not be zero length.

PREREQUISITES

mod_perl2, Cache::SharedMemoryCache, Date::Format
