Authentication with mod_python without login credentials popup
I am using Centos server with apache server. I have added python script that reads my website's login cookie and based on that it return apache.OK or apache.HTTP_UNAUTHORIZED. However even if cookies is present, it will pop up that login form.
Any help on how to remove that pop up is appreciated.
I tried removing AuthType Basic, but than i get following error
The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.
<Directory "/var/www/html/reports" > AddHandler mod_python .py PythonHandler /tmp/access.py PythonAuthenHandler /tmp/access.py PythonDebug On SSLRequireSSL AllowOverride AuthConfig #AuthType Basic AuthName "Restricted Area" AuthBasicAuthoritative Off Options -Indexes require valid-user
just found out if you don't want login pop up , you will have to set up req.user to something
It was throwing error before that req.user is null. I did this
req.user = "nobody"
