security with apache

Msg#: 4625055 posted 1:07 pm on Nov 21, 2013 (gmt 0)

Hi, i have a couple of questions on security with Apache:

I have a share on a server( window) .
In Apache ( on the same server) I configured a Directory to this share. I would like to limit the access only to some users, but using mod_auth_sspi all domain users are autorized.
1) Do Apache not respect the directory permission cause it accesses the share with the user which started it?
2) Ho can I limit the access to some users?

Many Thanks

welcome to WebmasterWorld, Gabriele!

the permissions of the directory are relevant to the access by the apache server process.
web access controls for requested url paths use techniques unrelated to the filesystem.

first you must specify how you define the users or classes of users you wish to restrict.
IP addresses? userids?
