Hola - Sure thing. Create an htpasswd file for each realm. .htpasswd1 and .htpasswd2 Add your users into which ever realm they belong. Lets say you have Joe, Susy, Mark in .htpasswd1 and Bob, Nick, Sally in .htpasswd2 Now, in your httpd.conf file put something like this: <Directory /foo> AuthName "Foo" AuthType Basic AuthUserFile /bar/.userpasswd AuthGroupFile /bar/.grppasswd AllowOverride None order allow,deny allow from all </Directory> Create a file called /bar/.grppasswd with something like joe:joe susy:susy mark:mark bob:bob nick:nick sally:sally realm1:joe,susy,mark realm2:bob,nick,sally combindedrealm:bob,nick,sally,joe then in /bar/public_html(examples, all of course) your .htaccess file would look something like this: DirectoryIndex index.html require group realm2 combinedrealm order deny,allow deny from all satisfy any Then all you have to do is edit the users you want in the combinedrealm group on the /bar/.grppasswd file. In this case, everyone from realm2 will get in, and only joe who is from realm one. There are probably some errors here and its overly complex.. sorry about that, in a hurry. :) Lemme know if that works for ya, or if you want something different .djc.
