I just learned from this question how to password-protect an AWStats application (Static Files, CGI Scripts and PHP Pages), and followed this guide, which worked like a charm! The site is now effectively password protected, however, after entering the username and password the first time, you seem to be logged in from that computer indefinitely. This is a problem when accessing pages from certain computers, where you would desire to "log out" before you leave.
How can you "log out" from the site, so that nobody else can access the protected application from the same computer at a later point? I was unable to find an answer to this on this Q&A site, or in the documentation.
Thanks in advance! :)
There is not (yet) a canonical way to log out of HTTP Authentication, as it is completely browser-side. There are workarounds and certain methods to accomplish this task, but they are likely browser-specific. The best list of explanations and workarounds I have seen on this topic is available here.
