Add users to the Apache authentication file

Follow these steps:

  • Create a group file. This group file associates a group name with a list of persons in that group and has the following syntax.

    GroupName: bitnami user admin user2
  • Add the user(s) to your password file:

    $ htpasswd /path/to/your/password/file user2
  • Modify the Apache configuration as below:

    AuthType Basic
    AuthName "By Invitation Only"
    # Optional line:
    AuthBasicProvider file
    AuthUserFile /path/to/your/password/file
    AuthGroupFile /path/to/your/groups/file
    Require group GroupName
  • Restart the Apache server.
