Bug: AuthName Should not be ByPassword

The AuthName paramter in the bin/.htaccess file should contain something more meaningful than "ByPassword".

Test case

Any login to TWiki using the standard distribution.


TWiki version: 01 Dec 2001
TWiki plugins: n/a
Server OS: any
Web server: Apache
Perl version: any
Client OS: any
Web Browser: IE5 (any?)

Follow up

Fix record

Maybe this is responsibility of admin to set it up. I set it up to display guest password:

AuthName 'TWiki UserName (i.e. TWikiGuest/guest)'

Maybe we can have this change in default distribution - to make admin's life little easier, making SimplerTWikiDistribution.

For instance, here is the text I use:

AuthName "Enter your WikiName: (First name and name, no space, not dots, capitalized: JohnSmith, JeanPaulDeux, etc...). If you dont have one, cancel for registering"

Fixed (some time ago) and in TWikiAlphaRelease.
