Response to: Digest vs. Basic Authentication

It's true that Apple ships their version of Apache 1.3.x with the obsolete mod_digest module (which doesn't work with their own iCal product). Curiously, Apache ships 1.3.x with the up-to-date mod_auth_digest.

You can get a precompiled version at:

Install it in some convenient location (like, say /usr/local/libexec) and replace the loading of mod_digest in your httpd.conf file with

LoadModule digest_auth_module /path/to/


AddModule mod_auth_digest.c

After that, you should be good to go with digest authentication.
