Description jouvin 2015-12-02 14:45:27 EST
Description of problem:

We are suffering httpd bug 46421 (https://bz.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=46421) with MySQL backend for authz. We assessed that the last version of mod_authz_dbd (rebuilt from sources, fixed in httpd 2.4.13) works. Any chance to have this patch backported to RHEL7 httpd.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

httpd 2.4.6-31

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create 2 groups (e.g. group1 and group2) into the httpd authz MySQL backend and add the same user in both groups
2. Add a 'require dbd-group group1' (or group2) for one <Directory> or <Location>
3. In a browser, try to access the URL: you'll get a 403 error (forbidden)

Actual results:

403 error

Expected results:

Successful access to the url

Hi Joe,

Thanks for the answer. In fact I'm a CentOS user so I don't think I can report it through the regular RH support channel. I hope it will be taken into account anyway...
