for auth-login, i don't like to have pop-up box to enter the username/password. i like to enter the username/password in login-form.  

Test script:
$username = "usa";
$password = "newyork";

if(($_POST['PHP_AUTH_USER'] == $username)&& ($_POST['PHP_AUTH_PW'] == $password))
     echo apache_setenv("PHP_AUTH_USER",$_POST['PHP_AUTH_USER']);
     echo apache_setenv("PHP_AUTH_PW",$_POST['PHP_AUTH_PW']);	
  	echo putenv("PHP_AUTH_USER =$_POST['PHP_AUTH_USER']");
	echo putenv("PHP_AUTH_PW = $_POST['PHP_AUTH_PW']");

<form method="post">
<p>Username : <input type="textbox" name="PHP_AUTH_USER" id="PHP_AUTH_USER" /><br />
<p>Password : <input type="password" name="PHP_AUTH_PW" id="PHP_AUTH_PW" /><br />
<p>	<input type="submit" name="submit" />

Expected result:
by using the phpinfo(), we need to see the _SERVER['PHP_AUTH_USER'] = usa. 

Actual result:
by using the phpinfo(), '_SERVER['PHP_AUTH_USER'] ' is totally missed..

Sorry, but your problem does not imply a bug in PHP itself.  For a
list of more appropriate places to ask for help using PHP, please
visit as this bug system is not the
appropriate forum for asking support questions.  Due to the volume
of reports we can not explain in detail here why your report is not
a bug.  The support channels will be able to provide an explanation
for you.

Thank you for your interest in PHP.
