Description Vadym Chepkov 2011-09-06 13:30:53 EDT
After updating from httpd-2.2.17-10.fc15.1.i686 to httpd-2.2.19-2.fc15.i686 
mod_auth_pam got broken.

This is the configuration:

<Directory /var/www/html/restricted/vpn>
   AuthPAM_Enabled on
   AuthType Basic
   AuthName "VPN Users"
   require group vpnadmins

I get 500 Internal server error with the following line in the log:

[Tue Sep 06 10:29:47 2011] [error] [client] AuthUserFile not specified in the configuration

I have the same issue in F16.

I see in koji that for the last F15 update we have:

* Tue Sep 13 2011 Joe Orton <jorton@redhat.com> - 2.2.21-1
- update to 2.2.21
- restore authnoprov patch (#736104)

But for the last F16 update we have:

* Tue Sep 13 2011 Joe Orton <jorton@redhat.com> - 2.2.21-1
- update to 2.2.21

Did the "restore authnoprov patch" not get applied to F16?

I am still having this issue in F16 as well.  Could someone possibly review/reopen this ticket?
