I'm using the http_authentication plugin, and everything's working
fine in my development environment with webrick. However, when I run
on my production platform of apache2+mod_fcgid,
authenticate_or_request_with_http_basic() always returns false, and
(more interestingly) never processes the block. See example below.
Here's my setup:
* apache 2.0.55
* libapache2-mod-fcgid 1.07-1
* ruby 1.8.2-1
* libfcgi-ruby1.8 0.8.6-1
* rails 1.2.3
* http_authentication r6836 from http://svn.rubyonrails.org/rails/plugins
(hasn't changed since 2006-12-02?)
For an example, in the following test code, the second debug message
(with username and password) is never reached.
