I have been reading conflicting reports as to whether or not it is possible to use Digest Authentication with Apache on Mac OS X. Up to date -- today, April 2002 - do the browsers Explorer 5.0 and Netscape Communicator 4.7 support Digest? And if so, can you give details on the correct syntax to use for the .htaccess file and the .htdigest file. Also, could you explain how the AuthGroupFile works and where to put it, ie, do you put it at the top level or at the level that you want to limit groups, or both? I have 3 groups and need to put permissions on several directories, I have read the concepts in books and web sites over and over, but they only mention 1 group. Will the users need to type in passwords a second time for entrance into deeper files, or will the user names included in the AuthGroupFile be sufficient?
