NAME ^

Apache::AuthExpire - mod_perl handler to provide Authentication time limits on .htaccess protected pages.

SYNOPSIS ^

  In httpd.conf file:
        PerlAuthenHandler Apache::AuthExpire
        PerlSetVar DefaultLimit <timeout in seconds>

  Optional httpd.conf file entry:
        PerlSetVar TIMEOUT_DEBUG <0 || 1>
           Turns debugging on to print messages to server error_log

  Optional .htaccess entries: 
        PerlSetVar TimeLimit <time>
            or
        PerlSetVar MODE Off        # to turn off timeouts
                                # Will provide further methods later.

DESCRIPTION ^

  Simple mod_perl handler for the AUTHENTICATION phase to set a limit on user inactivity.
  Will provide timeouts to any file under the protection of an .htaccess file, unless the 
  'MODE' option set to anything other than 0 in the .htaccess file.  The 'DefaultLimit' is
  set via the httpd.conf file, and unless the user specified 'TimeLimit' is set and less 
  than the 'DefaultLimit', determines the length of time a user can be inactive.  This 
  handler can be set anywhere an AUTHENTICATION handler can be specified.

Caveats
