Hi Sergio and everyone on the List

Been using your http auth pam module for quite some time now, always
worked like a charm.

At least starting with nginx version 0.8.29 it seems it just doesn't
work anymore. (gonna investigate with older versions)

pam_ldap still works without a Problem on the very same Jail.

My nginx-pam file:
auth            required        /usr/local/lib/
account         required        /usr/local/lib/

OS is FreeBSD 8.0-STABLE #4 r199975 amd64

The only thing that stands out is kinda this line:
2009/12/10 14:00:14 [debug] 45783#0: *31 PAM: user 'user' - not
authenticated: authentication information is unavailable

Thats the answer from PAM?

Nginx Debuglog output:

Cheers Tobi
