completed by: qxcv

mentors: Bastian Blank, Reimar Bauer, Thomas Waldmann, Prashant Kumar, Eugene Syromyatnikov


Verify that GivenAuth auth method works with apache2 for http basic auth. Document how it is configured.


  • configure apache2 for http basic auth
  • test if GivenAuth works - if it does not work, file an issue on bitbucket

  • test also with non-ascii usernames (and if you use windows, fix that coding todo in the existing GivenAuth docs)

  • write documentation about it, extend existing documentation about it

Deliverables: patch / changeset


moin2 has several builtin authentication methods. GivenAuth for moin2 is not verified currently.
