Chapter 19. Apache Modules > mod_auth_anon

19.5. mod_auth_anon

The mod_auth_anon module determines which clients can access parts of the server anonymously. A standard anonymous connection uses the user anonymous with the client user's email address as password. Use of this module allows the server to track visitors and what pages they have requested.

Anonymous

Anonymous user1 user2 ...

[Within <Directory>, or .htaccess]

Specifies a list of users who do not require password authentication to access documents in this realm. The user IDs are case-insensitive. For example:

Anonymous anonymous guest "Some User"

(All)

Anonymous_Au...

Anonymous_Au... Anonymous_Authoritative on|off

[Within <Directory>, or .htaccess]

Decides at which level authentication and authorization can be performed. If off is specified, and there is no user ID matching the requester, authentication and authorization are passed to lower-level modules, which allow anonymous access to their respective content based on individual settings.

(All)
