NAME

Apache::AuthzUserDir - mod_perl UserDir authorization module

SYNOPSIS

 <Directory /home/*/public_html>
 PerlAuthzHandler Apache::AuthzUserDir

 # This is the standard authentication stuff.
 # Any can be used, but basic .htpasswd authentication
 # is shown for simplicity.
 AuthName "Foo Bar Authentication"
 AuthType Basic
 AuthUserFile /usr/local/apache/.htpasswd-userdirs
 # This tells apache to only let in users whose
 # http login name matches the * in /home/*/public_html
 require valid-user

 </Directory>

DESCRIPTION

Apache::AuthzUserDir is designed to work with mod_perl and Apache's mod_userdir such that a single systemwide <Directory> block and .htpasswd file can be used to allow authenticated users only into their own UserDir (typically, public_html) directories.

This is especially useful with mod_dav and mod_ssl running on an alternate port for users to upload to their public webspace.
