Subject: Trivial PerlAuthenHandler dies with 500 ISE and no log message
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 427b
Consider the following tied to PerlAuthenHandler: sub handler { return Apache2::Const::OK; } since it didn't set $->auth_type or $r->user, Apache gets confused. Fair enough. But it then generates a 500 ISE with no logging to this fact. It's taken me all weekend to work out that I need to sub handler { my $r = shift; $r->auth_type("Basic"); $r->user("my-name-here"); return Apache2::Const::OK; } -- Paul Evans

I forgot to add... It would be nice if, at the least, the docs brought much clearer attention to this fact. Preferably with a nice big example showing, for example, the above. Ideally it would be nice if apache threw an error message explaining why it was going to 500 ISE; though I appreciate that might be out of mod_perl's hands and into apache proper. -- Paul Evans
