sorry if the question has already been asked, but i could not find any answer in google:
my brand new xymon installation (Xymon 4.3.27-1.el7.terabithia) on Centos7 has the liens below in apache config file:
I have created the /etc/xymon/xymonpasswd file , but the access is still free with no pass request.
Is there something I did not understand? Should this file located somewhere else?
Thank you in advance
# Password file where users with access to these scripts are kept.
# Although expected in $XYMONHOME/etc/ by the useradm and chpasswd
# scripts, files here can be read with the "config" message type,
# which allows status-privileged clients to read arbitrary regular files
# from the directory.
# This file should be owned and readable only by the apache server user,
# and ideally merely a symlink to a location outside of $XYMONHOME/etc/
# Create it with:
# htpasswd -c /etc/xymon/xymonpasswd USERNAME
# chown apache:apache /etc/xymon/xymonpasswd
# chmod 640 /etc/xymon/xymonpasswd
# Add more users / change passwords with: "htpasswd /etc/xymon/xymonpasswd USERNAME"
# You can also use a group file to restrict admin access to members of a
# group, instead of anyone who is logged in. In that case you must setup
# the "xymongroups" file, and change the "Require" settings to require
# a specific group membership. See the Apache docs for more details.
AuthName "Xymon Administration"
# "valid-user" restricts access to anyone who is logged in.
