I have 2 questions regarding Apache Basic Auth that i currently am utilising. I have a website that after a certain action, the website will produce a Basic Auth username and password for the user to use to access a service.
This is working OK at the moment - but the website is picking up traffic rapidly so there are many many entries in the basic auth file now.
Question 1) Is there a limit on the amount of basic auth users apache can handle?
Question 2) is there a better way to manage basic auth users? Or some type of username/password access
