You need to test the response on your basic http auth’d dev server. You want to pass it in the header. You’re on a real computer…
1) Encode your credentials. Notice passing -n to echo so we don’t get a trailing newline.
- $ echo -n ‘<username>:<password>’ | openssl enc -base64
- feel free to verify $ echo -n ‘foo:bar’ | openssl enc -base64 | openssl enc -base64 -d
2) Send request
- $ curl <url> -h “Authorization: Basic <encoded_cred_string>”
