I'm trying to set up HTTP Basic auth with PAM on Apache (running on Ubuntu 10.04).
I have a VirtualHost setup with SSL and the options below for HTTP Basic authentication:
AuthBasicAuthoritative off AuthPAM_Enabled On AuthType Basic AuthName "PAM" require valid-user
However, PAM refuses to log me in, despite having the right credentials.
Here's what I have in auth.log:
unix_chkpwd: password check failed for user (test) apache2: pam_unix(apache2:auth): authentication failure; logname= uid=33 euid=33 tty= ruser= rhost=XX.XX.XX.XX user=test
Could this be related to HTTPS sending the encrypted password to Apache, and Apache failing to decrypt it somehow, instead sending it directly to PAM?
Help is greatly appreciated.
