Whenever we run a private server somewhere on the Internet, we need access control. Basic or digest auth was the way to go in the old days, but most of us use some form of cookie based authentication nowadays. That’s fairly easy with server side scripts, but what about static pages or reverse proxies? How can we make the apache server to provide cookie auth?
