Name

cachemgr_passwd

Synopsis

This directive allows you to protect cache manager pages with a password. Unfortunately, this is an extremely weak authorization scheme, because passwords are sent as cleartext in the cache manager HTTP request. See Section 14.2.2.2 for a discussion of cache manager passwords.
