Using this module with apache2 it actually slows the
server operation a lot than using other auth methods
(ex. db files). The reason seems to be that for example
when I open a directory in a browser, which directory
is configured with AutoIndex, apache for each entry in
that directory does 2 (two!) db connections, one after
another, first queries the host_info for the current
virtual host, second queries for the current user (the
user sent by the browser in the request with
credentials). I dont see any reason why that is needed.
I have a 400+ entries directory and on my system it
takes 25 seconds to show it by apache (in that time I
have a apache daemon using 99% CPU).
