Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

munin-node-configure --suggest tells me that the apache_* nodes cannot be used:

apache_accesses            | no   | no [Port 80: Authorization Required]   
apache_processes           | no   | no [Port 80: Authorization Required]   
apache_volume              | no   | no [Port 80: Authorization Required]

This is correct: the virtual-host is the only accessible site and is put behind a simple .htaccess login.

How can I configure the apache_* nodes to login with basic authentication? Is that possible at all?

After diving into the sourcecode for the apache_ nodes, I found the documentation on this issue in there:

If you need authenticated access to the URL you can specify the
username and password in the URL.  For example:

     env.url http://munin:spamalot@localhost/server-status?auto

This works.
