Isn't the line :

authenticate {
                        Auth-Type Perl       {

on the config file under sites-enabled forces for perl authentication?
Do i need to configure it smwhere else too?

As i see it checks the username/passwd via perl actually, because when i
give an invalid username i got the user/pass error. But with a valid
user/pass i got the (Auth-Type) error.

PS:I will use perl authentication only in one of my virtual servers..
Rest will use different auth methods..
