From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20021003

Description of problem:
Can't locate object method "user" via package "Apache::Connection" at
/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0/Apache/ line 177

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.use .htpasswd that acesses a mysql database for login info 

Actual Results:  When using .htpasswd with Database authentication error : 
Can't locate object method "user" via package "Apache::Connection" at
/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0/Apache/ line 177 


Expected Results:  This should authenticate users. 

Additional info:

When upgrading an existing Web Site to Red Hat 8.0 we ran into the following
error once we enabled authdbi : 

Can't locate object method "user" via package "Apache::Connection" at
/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0/Apache/ line 177

According to this URL :

"any auth module should now be using $r->user instead of 

When I modified 
/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0/Apache/ from a RedHat 8.0 install and
changed the line from $r->connection->user to $r->user my authentication proces
began working again.

Where did /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0/Apache/ come from?  It's not
from mod_perl and no Red Hat package should have installed in site_perl.

This was a box that I cannot verify the person that installed it actually
followed the correct procedure for building a Red Hat Linux box. I am no longer
affiliated with these people so if this is not part of a standard Red Hat Linux
install this can be closed. Thanks for looking into it.
