I have a section on my website that is privileged.  I would like to set an expiration date so that after a set time, the username and password will not work.

1.  Is this even possible
2.  Here is the snipet from my httpd.conf file

<Directory /var/www/restrict/websource>
      AuthType Basic
      AuthName "Web Edit"
      AuthUserFile /var/passwd/webpass
      AuthGroupFile /var/passwd/webgrp
      Require group webgrp
</Directory>

Thanks...

I don't think it's possible with apache.
I would create simple shell script, which will delete/lock (comment out) such user from your webpass file, and scheduled its run via cron/at.
