    I have been trying to use a script requiring HTTP Digest Authentication with PHP and hit a brick wall. After printing out the $_SERVER variables, I found that the necessary $_SERVER['PHP_AUTH_DIGEST'] variable was not there. This leads me to believe that either PHP or Apache was compiled without that feature enabled.

    I have searched through the WHM control panel and the documentation for a couple days now and found no solution to my problem.

    First, is mod_auth_digest available in Apache/PHP in Cpanel's default configuration or must it be enabled in some other way. If the later is true, what command must be issued to enable it. This is on a dedicated machine and I do have root access through SSH.

    Thanks for any help you can give.

    Auth Digest can be compiled into Apache. So when you run EasyApache, when you get to Profile :: Apache :: PHP Main :: PHP Specific :: Basic click on Advanced Configuration then select Auth Digest under Apache.

    These instructions are for the new EasyApache 3 which is currently only available in EDGE and CURRENT.
