Hi,

Not sure, but think webserver auth broken in 2.0.

Working in 1.92, and come back in 2.05 ....

Hi,

You need to activate the Plugin first : in the main menu you have an icon for Plugin.

Webserver authentication means that the webserver (and not limesurvey) handles authentication. Limesurvey justs uses the result from that authentication attempt if available. If using apache, read about it here: httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/howto/auth.html or use google to find help on that.

As I tried to explain before, the webserver authentication plugin does not handle authentication. It just reads the response from the server. You should configure your server to handle authentication and set the correct headers if you want to use it. You can not configure your webserver from inside limesurvey.

It seems you are looking for a different kind of plugin: on that will handle authentication on a different database then the limesurvey database. That is currently not available. Because of the plugin system you can code that yourself or hire a programmer do to it for you. The benefits of using a plugin over just hacking the code are that you can preserve the functionalitity when doing updates to limesurvey.
