Apache::AuthExpire - mod_perl handler to provide Authentication time limits on .htaccess protected pages.
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.
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.
Does not work well with all browsers at this stage, please see mod_perl guide for more information.
None by default.
