Package: dspam-webfrontend
Version: 3.6.8-5
Severity: normal

The current apache2 sample config doesn't work.  There is a workaround
detailed here:


Also the comment:

# Note: you have to add www-data to the 'shadow'
#       group to make this work. You whould
#       better change for another authentication bakend

is only correct if you are using shadow passwords.  If you are using
e.g. ldap passwords, you don't have to make this security compromise..
For apache1, there is "libapache-mod-auth-shadow", but I don't know of
any equivalent in Debian for apache2...
