When I do not provide a require directive, apache 2.4 seems to ignore authentication and just lets the user access the url.

Is there way to turn off Authorization checks and only worry about Authentication? I want to know who is logging into my web page, while still allowing everyone access.

You want the username to appear in the logs or what are you exactly trying to accomplish? – Frands Hansen Feb 3 '14 at 22:48

I don't think that is possible and I don't think that is how this feature was intended. You might want to implement something like that in your webapp.
