Hi All,

Whenever I use this test.php3

header("HTTP/1.1 401 Authorization Required");
header("WWW-Authenticate: Basic realm=\"SQL\"");

(order doesn't matter here, i tried)

I get (using telnet www 80):

HTTP/1.1 401 Authorization Required
Date: Fri, 20 Mar 1998 11:54:15 GMT
Server: Apache/1.2.5 Ben-SSL/1.13
WWW-Authenticate: Basic realm="502 SQL"
Connection: close
Content-Type: text/html

Connection closed by foreign host.

In other words: the UID of the server process (with suexec, this is 502) is in the auth realm. Using a plain .htaccess file, this is not the case.

As you can see I'm using Apache 1.2.5 with SSL hacks (Apache-SSL). This is through a non-SLL connection.

Furthermore, PHP3.0b6 is linked agains MySQL3.21...mumble

I've looked through the php and apache source but couldn't find anything useful.

This is not a bug.  Expected behaviour when PHP is running in safe mode.
