I'm using 2 Apache with two separate ports in same machine. It means Apache 1.3 with 8001 and Apache 2.2 with 8002 Port. I used SSL (self-signed) too. I used same user name and password for both. Now I can go from to easily. But it ask me username and password again. When you open, it asked username and password, and when you click on a link and go to, it asked username and password again. I want to ask one time authentication info not two times.

welcome to WebmasterWorld, q12345!

are you talking about HTTP Basic Authentication?

http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2617.txt [ietf.org]:
The realm value (case-sensitive), in combination with the canonical root URL (the absoluteURI for the server whose abs_path is empty; see section 5.1.2 of [2]) of the server being accessed, defines the protection space.

this means your 2 servers are separate authentication realms since the root urls include the port number and are therefore different.
