V2: Basicauth feature

Does Caddy v2 support basicauth in file_server?

I couldn’t find anything related in the v2 documentation.



The file server in v2 is what’s referred to as a terminating handler. The scope of its functionality is to produce a file for the client, ending the request chain.

Authentication, such as basic auth, would be a non-terminating handler (a middleware) you would introduce as part of the chain, e.g. match /path → basicauth foo bar → serve file.

Doesn’t look like basic auth is in yet, though.

Ahh okay, thank you for the explanation! :slight_smile:

Okay, then I can safely open an issue/feature request for it.
