Hi Marcel,

Yes it does.

This is an example of how it looks on the access_log: - apache [25/Mar/2014:18:48:04 -0300] "GET /repositorio/ HTTP/1.1" 401 472 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.9; rv:28.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/28.0" - admin [25/Mar/2014:18:48:08 -0300] "GET /repositorio/ HTTP/1.1" 401 472 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.9; rv:28.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/28.0"

As you can see, one access was made with apache user, and the other with admin user. With PHP you could retrieve the user with the variable $_SERVER ['REMOTE_USER']

Best regards,

Felipe Alencastro
