Hi there,

I've just installed the full Rails stack on a Slicehost Ubuntu VPS
using deprec 1.7.1.  I've successfully deployed my app and it all
works fine with one exception (albeit a rather fatal one) : I'm using
Authenticated System (
authenticated_system.rb) to handle user log-in but I'm seeing no
hence log-in fails miserably.

The same version of Apache (2.2.4) is configured in exactly the same
way on my production server (httpd.conf and apps/myapp.conf are
identical on both systems), and the auth headers are present on that
system and everything works fine.  Would anyone be able to help out?

Thanks in advance.
