Turn on $_SERVER["PHP_AUTH_U SER"] locally?


I am finding that on a new server where I am developing


Do not show up in $_SERVER when I when they should be defined I test
print_r($_SERVE R) or this

if (!isset($_SERVE R['PHP_AUTH_USER'])) {
header('WWW-Authenticate: Basic realm="My Realm"');
header('HTTP/1.0 401 Unauthorized');
echo 'Text to send if user hits Cancel button';
} else {
echo "<p>Hello {$_SERVER['PHP_AUTH_USER']}.</p>";
echo "<p>You entered {$_SERVER['PHP_AUTH_PW']} as your

Is there a setting that is keeping PHP from accessing this
information? Can I set this locally?

$_SERVER["REMOTE_USE R"] also stays empty.

TIA for any advice!

I should add that if I add an .htaccess to a folder requiring username "dm"
and password "whatever" and then

do this

echo 'PHP_AUTH_USER =' . $_SERVER['PHP_AUTH_USER'] . '<br>';
echo 'PHP_AUTH_PW =' . $_SERVER['PHP_AUTH_PW'] . '<br>';
echo 'REMOTE_USER =' . $_SERVER['REMOTE_USER'] . '<br>';
I get this:


so REMOTE_USER is defined but no :password.

I've had PHP on my Win2K server running IIs 5 for about 2 weeks now. I have an annoying problem in that I can not run the php scripts/pages locally, instead they open up in the browser as a download.

BUT if I open up the browser on the IIs server...

Hi all, Would appreciate some advice on the following: I am trying to speed up an Access database connected to a SQL Server back-end. I know I can use a pass-through query to pass the sql code directly to SQL Server and speed things up.
