Hello - we have a website with cookies authentication and .htaccess file that protect videos.

The problem we have is that .htaccess cannot read the users from our database to see if they are valid users or not.

we have something like this for the htaccess file to read users from our database with the correct values, please any ideas? Thank you.

AuthGroupFile /dev/null
AuthName RESTRICTED
AuthType Basic
 
AuthMySQLHost
AuthMySQLDB
AuthMySQLUser
AuthMySQLPassword
AuthMySQLUserTable username
AuthMySQLNameField username
AuthMySQLPasswordField password
AuthMySQLCryptedPasswords Off
AuthMySQLScrambledPasswords Off
AuthMySQLKeepAlive on
 

<Limit GET POST>
 require valid-user
</Limit>
