Configure protected directories in apache - Success, but no points assigned and a new different task got added again immediately within fraction of seconds

Hi Inderpreet/team,

Today i have worked on the below task and submitted completed and also got success message, but to my surprise the page got refreshed i don’t see any points added and suddenly a new task got added again(Install and configure NFS Server). Could you please check and update my points accordingly.

Here is the task i was assigned.

xFusionCorp Industries has hosted some static websites on Nautilus Application Servers in Stratos DC. There are some confidential directories on document root that need to be password protected. Since they are using Apache for hosting the websites so production support team has decided to use .htaccess with basic auth. There is a website needs to be uploaded to /var/www/html/itadmin on Nautilus App Server 1. But before that we need to setup the authentication.

Create /var/www/html/itadmin direcotry if doesn’t exist.

Add an user yousuf in htpasswd and set its password to GyQkFRVNr3.

There is a file /tmp/index.html placed on Jump Server. Copy the same to new directory you created, please make sure default document root should remain /var/www/html.

@ramashish.sharma can you explain what are the commands.u gave

Hi Sasi,

This has been resolved long ago. Actually the issue was from backend at kodekloud server end.

Once the backend issue resolved, my task got corrected and it was success…

i have been struck with 4th step in the httpd configuration file where you add the directory details.

can you throw some light on the steps.?

  1. create directory
  2. Adding user:
    htpasswd -c /etc/httpd/.htpasswd
  3. Create basic .htaccess file
    cat /var/www/html/itadmin/.htaccess <----------- itadmin is the new directory created
    AuthType Basic
    AuthName “Restricted Content”
    AuthUserFile /etc/httpd/.htpasswd
    Require valid-user
  4. Update the httpd configuration file with this entry
    cat /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf
    <Directory “/var/www/html/itadmin”> <--------- itadmin is the new directory name
    AllowOverride AuthConfig
  5. Scp /tmp/index.html file from jumpbox to app server (/var/www/html/itadmin/index.html).
  6. Restart httpd service
  7. Test connectivity
    curl -u yousuf:GyQkFRVNr3 http://stapp01:8080/itadmin/

@ramashish.sharma

what is that you need at the step 4 @Sasi, what error exactly you are facing after following all the steps?

Could you please be more specific?

Test connectivity
curl -u yousuf:GyQkFRVNr3 http://stapp01:8080/itadmin/

curl command gives internal server error
curl -u mark:8FmzjvFU6S http://stapp03:8080/sysops

500 Internal Server Error

Internal Server Error

The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

Please contact the server administrator at root@localhost to inform them of the time this error occurred, and the actions you performed just before this error.

More information about this error may be available in the server error log.

@ramashish.sharma
what is the mistake iam doing??

also in httpd.conf file do i need to update AllowOverride AuthConfig
as AuthConfig ?

@ramashish.sharma

also adding a user i gave command
Sudo htpasswd -c /etc/httpd/.htpasswd username

above command is correct? pls check below my entire commands for the task. pls tell me where iam going wrong.

then it is asking for password, does copy and paste works here or do i need to manually type the password

Validate your work.
$ curl -u mark:8FmzjvFU6S http://stapp03:8080/sysops/

Hope this clears your doubts.

Yes, your config file should look like this

  1. cat /var/www/html/itadmin/.htaccess
    AuthType Basic
    AuthName “Restricted Content”
    AuthUserFile /etc/httpd/.htpasswd
    Require valid-user

  2. cat /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf

  3. systemctl restart httpd

test:
curl -u mark:8FmzjvFU6S http://stapp03:8080/sysops/
(Remember to put slash after “sysops”)
curl http://stapp03:8080/sysops/ [You should get “Restricted access” message without specifying user.

still no luck on this task, did all the steps 1-6 and when i did curl command it is not giving correct response

are these commands need to be given from root?

chown apache:apache /etc/httpd/.htpasswd
chmod 644 /etc/httpd/.htpasswd

and in 4th step where exactly this directory file location is i find many directory more than once

cat /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf
<Directory “/var/www/html/itadmin”>
AllowOverride AuthConfig

what response should we see when we do curl command?

@ramashish.sharma

  • create directory
  • Adding user:
    htpasswd -c /etc/httpd/.htpasswd yousuf
  • Create basic .htaccess file
    cat /var/www/html/itadmin/.htaccess <----------- itadmin is the new directory created
    AuthType Basic
    AuthName “Restricted Content”
    AuthUserFile /etc/httpd/.htpasswd
    Require valid-user
  • Update the httpd configuration file with this entry
    cat /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf
    <Directory “/var/www/html/itadmin”> <--------- itadmin is the new directory name** [Update this anywhere in the file]
    AllowOverride AuthConfig
  • Scp /tmp/index.html file from jumpbox to app server (/var/www/html/itadmin/index.html).
  • Restart httpd service
  • Test connectivity
    curl -u yousuf:GyQkFRVNr3 http://stapp01:8080/itadmin/

I have tested the above steps and it works perfectly. Not sure where exactly you are missing. If still you are getting issues, please check the httpd configuration log @ /etc/httpd/logs/error_log in the server.

Please share the screenshot of all the steps performed by you so that it will be easier to see and update you.

If you do curl -u username:password http://servername:port/directoryname/ it will show the content of the file which you copied from jumpbox.

You can perform this steps in your local laptop VM.

This is the main Apache HTTP server configuration file. It contains the

configuration directives that give the server its instructions.

See URL:http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/ for detailed information.

In particular, see

URL:http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/mod/directives.html

for a discussion of each configuration directive.

Do NOT simply read the instructions in here without understanding

what they do. They’re here only as hints or reminders. If you are unsure

consult the online docs. You have been warned.

Configuration and logfile names: If the filenames you specify for many

of the server’s control files begin with “/” (or “drive:/” for Win32), the

server will use that explicit path. If the filenames do not begin

with “/”, the value of ServerRoot is prepended – so ‘log/access_log’

with ServerRoot set to ‘/www’ will be interpreted by the

server as ‘/www/log/access_log’, where as ‘/log/access_log’ will be

interpreted as ‘/log/access_log’.

ServerRoot: The top of the directory tree under which the server’s

configuration, error, and log files are kept.

Do not add a slash at the end of the directory path. If you point

ServerRoot at a non-local disk, be sure to specify a local disk on the

Mutex directive, if file-based mutexes are used. If you wish to share the

same ServerRoot for multiple httpd daemons, you will need to change at

least PidFile.

ServerRoot “/etc/httpd”

Listen: Allows you to bind Apache to specific IP addresses and/or

ports, instead of the default. See also the

directive.

Change this to Listen on specific IP addresses as shown below to

prevent Apache from glomming onto all bound IP addresses.

#Listen 12.34.56.78:80
Listen 8080

Dynamic Shared Object (DSO) Support

To be able to use the functionality of a module which was built as a DSO you

have to place corresponding `LoadModule’ lines at this location so the

directives contained in it are actually available before they are used.

Statically compiled modules (those listed by `httpd -l’) do not need

to be loaded here.

Example:

LoadModule foo_module modules/mod_foo.so

Include conf.modules.d/*.conf

If you wish httpd to run as a different user or group, you must run

httpd as root initially and it will switch.

User/Group: The name (or #number) of the user/group to run httpd as.

It is usually good practice to create a dedicated user and group for

running httpd, as with most system services.

User apache
Group apache

‘Main’ server configuration

The directives in this section set up the values used by the ‘main’

server, which responds to any requests that aren’t handled by a

definition. These values also provide defaults for

any containers you may define later in the file.

All of these directives may appear inside containers,

in which case these default settings will be overridden for the

virtual host being defined.

ServerAdmin: Your address, where problems with the server should be

e-mailed. This address appears on some server-generated pages, such

as error documents. e.g. admin@your-domain.com

ServerAdmin root@localhost

ServerName gives the name and port that the server uses to identify itself.

This can often be determined automatically, but we recommend you specify

it explicitly to prevent problems during startup.

If your host doesn’t have a registered DNS name, enter its IP address here.

#ServerName www.example.com:80

Deny access to the entirety of your server’s filesystem. You must

explicitly permit access to web content directories in other

blocks below.

AllowOverride none Require all denied

Note that from this point forward you must specifically allow

particular features to be enabled - so if something’s not working as

you might expect, make sure that you have specifically enabled it

below.

DocumentRoot: The directory out of which you will serve your

documents. By default, all requests are taken from this directory, but

symbolic links and aliases may be used to point to other locations.

DocumentRoot “/var/www/html”

Relax access to content within /var/www.

<Directory “/var/www”>
AllowOverride None
# Allow open access:
Require all granted

Further relax access to the default document root:

<Directory “/var/www/html”>
#
# Possible values for the Options directive are “None”, “All”,
# or any combination of:
# Indexes Includes FollowSymLinks SymLinksifOwnerMatch ExecCGI MultiViews
#
# Note that “MultiViews” must be named explicitly — “Options All”
# doesn’t give it to you.
#
# The Options directive is both complicated and important. Please see
# http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/mod/core.html#options
# for more information.
#
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks

#
# AllowOverride controls what directives may be placed in .htaccess files.
# It can be "All", "None", or any combination of the keywords:
#   Options FileInfo AuthConfig Limit
#
AllowOverride All

#
# Controls who can get stuff from this server.
#
Require all granted

DirectoryIndex: sets the file that Apache will serve if a directory

is requested.

DirectoryIndex index.html

The following lines prevent .htaccess and .htpasswd files from being

viewed by Web clients.

<Files “.ht*”>
Require all denied

ErrorLog: The location of the error log file.

If you do not specify an ErrorLog directive within a

container, error messages relating to that virtual host will be

logged here. If you do define an error logfile for a

container, that host’s errors will be logged there and not here.

ErrorLog “logs/error_log”

LogLevel: Control the number of messages logged to the error_log.

Possible values include: debug, info, notice, warn, error, crit,

alert, emerg.

LogLevel warn

# # The following directives define some format nicknames for use with # a CustomLog directive (see below). # LogFormat "%h %l %u %t \"%r\" %>s %b \"%{Referer}i\" \"%{User-Agent}i\"" combined LogFormat "%h %l %u %t \"%r\" %>s %b" common
<IfModule logio_module>
  # You need to enable mod_logio.c to use %I and %O
  LogFormat "%h %l %u %t \"%r\" %>s %b \"%{Referer}i\" \"%{User-Agent}i\" %I %O" combinedio
</IfModule>

#
# The location and format of the access logfile (Common Logfile Format).
# If you do not define any access logfiles within a <VirtualHost>
# container, they will be logged here.  Contrariwise, if you *do*
# define per-<VirtualHost> access logfiles, transactions will be
# logged therein and *not* in this file.
#
#CustomLog "logs/access_log" common

#
# If you prefer a logfile with access, agent, and referer information
# (Combined Logfile Format) you can use the following directive.
#
CustomLog "logs/access_log" combined
# # Redirect: Allows you to tell clients about documents that used to # exist in your server's namespace, but do not anymore. The client # will make a new request for the document at its new location. # Example: # Redirect permanent /foo http://www.example.com/bar
#
# Alias: Maps web paths into filesystem paths and is used to
# access content that does not live under the DocumentRoot.
# Example:
# Alias /webpath /full/filesystem/path
#
# If you include a trailing / on /webpath then the server will
# require it to be present in the URL.  You will also likely
# need to provide a <Directory> section to allow access to
# the filesystem path.

#
# ScriptAlias: This controls which directories contain server scripts.
# ScriptAliases are essentially the same as Aliases, except that
# documents in the target directory are treated as applications and
# run by the server when requested rather than as documents sent to the
# client.  The same rules about trailing "/" apply to ScriptAlias
# directives as to Alias.
#
ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ "/var/www/cgi-bin/"

“/var/www/cgi-bin” should be changed to whatever your ScriptAliased

CGI directory exists, if you have that configured.

<Directory “/var/www/cgi-bin”>
AllowOverride None
Options None
Require all granted

# # TypesConfig points to the file containing the list of mappings from # filename extension to MIME-type. # TypesConfig /etc/mime.types
#
# AddType allows you to add to or override the MIME configuration
# file specified in TypesConfig for specific file types.
#
#AddType application/x-gzip .tgz
#
# AddEncoding allows you to have certain browsers uncompress
# information on the fly. Note: Not all browsers support this.
#
#AddEncoding x-compress .Z
#AddEncoding x-gzip .gz .tgz
#
# If the AddEncoding directives above are commented-out, then you
# probably should define those extensions to indicate media types:
#
AddType application/x-compress .Z
AddType application/x-gzip .gz .tgz

#
# AddHandler allows you to map certain file extensions to "handlers":
# actions unrelated to filetype. These can be either built into the server
# or added with the Action directive (see below)
#
# To use CGI scripts outside of ScriptAliased directories:
# (You will also need to add "ExecCGI" to the "Options" directive.)
#
#AddHandler cgi-script .cgi

# For type maps (negotiated resources):
#AddHandler type-map var

#
# Filters allow you to process content before it is sent to the client.
#
# To parse .shtml files for server-side includes (SSI):
# (You will also need to add "Includes" to the "Options" directive.)
#
AddType text/html .shtml
AddOutputFilter INCLUDES .shtml

Specify a default charset for all content served; this enables

interpretation of all content as UTF-8 by default. To use the

default browser choice (ISO-8859-1), or to allow the META tags

in HTML content to override this choice, comment out this

directive:

AddDefaultCharset UTF-8

# # The mod_mime_magic module allows the server to use various hints from the # contents of the file itself to determine its type. The MIMEMagicFile # directive tells the module where the hint definitions are located. # MIMEMagicFile conf/magic

Customizable error responses come in three flavors:

1) plain text 2) local redirects 3) external redirects

Some examples:

#ErrorDocument 500 “The server made a boo boo.”
#ErrorDocument 404 /missing.html
#ErrorDocument 404 “/cgi-bin/missing_handler.pl”
#ErrorDocument 402 http://www.example.com/subscription_info.html

EnableMMAP and EnableSendfile: On systems that support it,

memory-mapping or the sendfile syscall may be used to deliver

files. This usually improves server performance, but must

be turned off when serving from networked-mounted

filesystems or if support for these functions is otherwise

broken on your system.

Defaults if commented: EnableMMAP On, EnableSendfile Off

#EnableMMAP off
EnableSendfile on

pls see httpd.config and error log still the curl command at the end is not giving correct response

i gave directory path in the root
i gave server name

There is some issue with your file “/var/www/html/finance/.htaccess”, as per your error log. Share the output of that file.

cat /var/www/html/finance/.htaccess

[root@stapp01 sysops]# cat .htaccess
AuthType Basic
AuthName “Restricted Content”
AuthUserFile /etc/httpd/.htpasswd
Require valid-user
@ramashish.sharma

Please remove complete line AuthName

And now Type same line again, remember do not copy paste, just type everything, as copy paste is giving junk characters…

Once done, restart httpd service and check curl output now…

sure will manualy type in…and will check curl
