iPlanet: Can .htaccess files be used in conjunction with siteminder?
Posted on 2006-05-21
We're using siteminder with iPlanet to control access to our site, but sometimes it's too cumbersome to easily manage low level directory access. We'd like to sometimes use .htaccess files to restrict access to certain directories. So siteminder would still control broad access, but for some lower level directories we'd like to be able to use "require user" directives in a .htaccess file to further restrict access. We enabled .htaccess files in iPlanet, but the "require user" directives are completely ignored. I'm assuming they're ignored because of siteminder, but don't know for sure. Does anyone know if it's possible to use siteminder and .htaccess together and, if so, how to do it? Thanks.
