Using Internal Authentication

We recommend updating the authentication system from apache to htpasswd (so NMIS does authentication instead of Apache). 3 steps need to be taken to change this.

Change Config.nmis to tell NMIS to use htpasswd 

%hash = (
--SNIP--
 'authentication' => {
 --SNIP--
   'auth_method_1' => 'htpasswd',  # <= change this FROM apache TO htpasswd

Backup old apache config

Generate new apache configuration (if you have customised yours edit it and remove the auth portions instead of generating a new one) 

#backup old config
cd/etc/httpd/conf.d/
cp00nmis.conf 00nmis.conf.pre-8.4.6G.bak

Update Apache Config for NMIS

Create new config to replace old config and restart apache 

/usr/local/nmis8/bin/nmis.pl type=apache > /etc/httpd/conf.d/00nmis.conf
service httpd restart
