APC Action Applications - Home Page

Frequently Asked Questions v2


If you realy think you need a logout, you have to create a special directory
  and Logout page under the restricted area of your website. I've set up a little
example here http://marek.greennet.org.uk/protect/http://marek.greennet.org.uk/protect/">http://marek.greennet.org.uk/protect/>

type jason:jason and you get in. Than you can click on logout ant it will
  take you to the logout page. The trick is that the page is under the same realm,
  so in fact you relogin as user "logout" with password "logout"


The .htaccess file for the /protect/logout area looks like this


AuthType Basic

  AuthName "Authenticate yourself"

    AuthUserFile /home/httpd/htdocs/marek.gn.apc.org/protect/logout/.htpw

    Require user logout

The /home/httpd/htdocs/marek.gn.apc.org/protect/logout/.htpw contains only
  user logout (the file was created using htpasswd), and only this user is allowed

Programmer's Notes: For some browsers this does not work - This is a work around and should be revisited. There are some plan for doing a PHP based permissions for Reader Managment.
