Name Context Description
AuthDefaultAuthoritative S V D .h specifies whether authentication is passed to lower level modules

AuthDefaultAuthoritative

If AuthDefaultAuthoritative is set to Off , authentication will be passed to lower level modules (if any).

Note! Normally there are no lower level modules as mod_authn_default is supposed to reside on a very low level. Therefore it is not advisable to change the default value ( On ).
