Re: [tor-talk] How to protect apache local-restricted from secret service access?



-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

If you would not like to disable the /server-status you could use
something like:

  AuthType Basic
  AuthName "Authentication Required"
  AuthUserFile "/etc/htpasswd/.htpasswd"
  Require valid-user

  Order allow,deny
  Allow from all

and protect it with some really heavy user/password.
