R8 mod_auth re-organisation
Thu Jun 20 16:58:52 CEST 2002
I just noticed that basic authentication in the INETs http server
doesn't work if you compile erlang without openSSL. This worked in R7.
Looking at mod_auth.erl, it appears to have undergone a total
rewrite. It now stores md5 hashes of passwords instead of the
passwords themselves, even when using plain, cleartext password
files. This is probably a feature.
I can only think of two ways to avoid this
1. build erlang with openSSL
2. modify mod_auth
I did the latter. Is there a another way?
My hack is attached, in case it's of use to anyone else.
