How to protect partial application with password apache2.2.4+proxy + mogrel cluster?

I was trying to ask the following question to the thread
but I wasn’t allowed.

so I have to create a new thread.

How do I use user authentication for just part of the app run on the
mongrel cluster behind apache mod balancer?

For example, I want the “/abc” accessible to the world, and the rest
is locked up.

Hi La Ji

Take a look at role_requirement, a simple-to-use but powerful plugin
which is used in tandem with acts_as_authenticated.
