Description Denice 2003-05-16 11:18:35 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030225

Description of problem:
When coding custom error docs, I found that an httpd directive for:
  ErrorDocument 401 some-errordoc-file
works if 'some-errordoc-file' is html, but fails if the file is php.  That is to
  with .htaccess password control in place, when I click on a
  password-protected link, instead of prompting me for a login,
  the server immediately serves the error document instead.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
php-4.2.2-17, httpd-2.0.40-21.1

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. insert custom php error document (401) in apache config file
2. /etc/init.d/httpd reload
3. click on .htaccess password-protected URL

Actual Results:  Error document served immediately

Expected Results:  Browser should prompt for username, password
