My httpf.conf file looks like this:

LoadModule authz_user_module
LoadModule authz_my_module

And my .htaccess file looks like this:

AuthType Basic 
AuthNam "private ares"
AuthBasicProvider file

Require user login1 login2
Require group group1 group2

How to ensure that Apache Http authorization modules will be fired modules in the order that I want?

I know that I my case Apache at first start authz_user_module and after that authz_my_module and I can use directives:

 AuthzUserAuthoritative off 
 AuthzMyModuleAuthoritative on

to make some control, but I would like to know in what order they will be fired.

OK, I found that it is not configurable. It is possible to do that from source code. –  ostry Oct 2 '13 at 20:23
