Authenticated access to static content
Is there a way to publish static html files in a subdirectory of a Redmine application that is subject to Redmine authentication?
If I put it under the public directory everyone can access it.
It might be possible with the apache authentication module available for svn repositories…
I use apache only as a frontend, with ProxyPass directive.
I would like to use Redmine authentication (that, in turn, uses LDAP), so that when a user is logged in, he can see some static content.
Redmine can't easily be made to protect external content. There is an apache module though, the intended use of which is to provide authentication and authorization for svn repositories. If you leave out the svn part and serve your static content instead of the svn repository, it should work for you too.
The crucial point is Redmine authentication, i.e. only Redmine users (that are a subset of LDAP users) should see some static content under Redmine app.
