I want to secure a part of my site served by Apache with an HTML form. Apache 2.3 has a module name mod_auth_form for this purpose. How do I do it on Apache 2.0?
I do not want to use HTTP authentication.

In older versions of Apache, you need to use basic/digest HTTP authentication or some kind of content management system with it's own auth system.
I'm looking for solution to this problem too.
After searching for some time, I found the solution called mod_auth_cookie_mysql
With the module, you authenticate a user with MySQL, then set the cookie in the browser.
When accessing a secured site, the module will verify the cookie with information in MySQL, and will allow authenticated user in.
Upgrade your server to Apache 2.3/2.4. There's a reason why new versions come out: new features
