Question

I use TWiki as a personal site on my home PC-net with Abyss webserver. http://www.aprelium.com/ I would like to use login to edit my pages but not to view. Abyss don't use .htaccess files. Is there another way to do authentication? I saw a hint about textfiles for password but it seems to belongs to an earlier version? When I call my site I should only have right to view pages. On every (or most) pages I would like login and password fields to login to the site and then have all rights. Is it possible with Abyss webserver?

Environment

Answer

I'm not familiar with that web server but there is documentation on how Abyss does security. If you read this and the corresponding Apache HTTP server documentation you should see how to map one onto the other. TWiki expects HTTP Basic Authentication i.e. the web server requires certain URLs to be only from logged in users, requesting a username and password that are then used in subsequent HTTP transactions.

Abyss looks like it can restrict user access but I'm not sure if it can do what's needed. Using Apache may be easier unless you have the time to investigate this.

By carefully reading the manuals I'm now able to have access control with AbyssWebbServer. The reason to use Abyss instead of Apache is that I'm using the webbserver together with Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004 as a server to the kneeboard. Abyss require very little of computer resources when running and the frame rate of FS2004 is almost not affected at all. Thanks! /Jonny
