AuthzDefaultAuthoritative Directive

Description:Sets whether authorization is passed to lower level modules
Syntax:AuthzDefaultAuthoritative On|Off
Default:AuthzDefaultAuthoritative On
Context:directory, .htaccess
Override:AuthConfig
Status:Base
Module:mod_authz_default

Setting the AuthzDefaultAuthoritative directive explicitly to Off allows for authorization to be passed on to lower level modules (as defined in the modules.c files).

Note

Normally there are no lower level modules, since mod_authz_default is defined to be already on a very low level. Therefore you should leave the value of AuthzDefaultAuthoritative as default (On).
