this is the error message when someone is posting to our site. The error is: Client used wrong authentication scheme 'Basic' in request for URI /index.php. Here are some logs for your review:

Not sure if it has something to do with the SSL or not or does it need to be hard coded in the Apache file?

Can you please give us a little more to go on?  SSCCE.  The URL, the source code of the program that generated the messages, the client input that triggered the messages -- things like that will give us a chance to help.

A bit of googling and the only thing I could come up with was owncloud. You need to disable 'Basic' authentication.

http://forum.owncloud.org/viewtopic.php?t=8073

(As Ray pointed out, without a point of reference this is just a guess.
Or, to quote Lord Blackadder,
'No, just a wild stab in the dark which is incidentally what you'll be getting if you don't start being a bit more helpful').

Well I disabled the module and now I get more errors. It was working fine before. This is on a mac server 10.9. the vendor uses basic authentication in windows. so what is the difference on the mac server? These are the error logs after I made the change module.

The issue was that the index.php was not selected as the default and disabled the mod_digest_apple in apache. Was able to receive the file.
