I spent all day Friday trying to get MoinMoin, Apache, and an IBM-internal authentication/authorization module to play nice together. I would have been better advised to leave early in the afternoon like everyone else.
Today, I was back at it again; and by lunchtime, I thought I had it nailed. Until, that is, I showed a colleague, who noted that I wasn’t really using SSL for the userid/password. And then I also noticed that only the front page of the wiki was visible at the root of the server — all of the other pages were down a level in names.
Fixing those problems took me the rest of the afternoon. But now I’ve got it working, for sure. Except for a couple of corner cases, and maybe they don’t matter that much anyway….who needs informative 403 responses, anyway?
I’m ready for another three-day weekend. Unfortunately, the next one is Yom Kippur!
