Then i call my webapp on webbrowser(on my PC) the server ask me the authentication, i give its and all work fine. But i want to add or show the current username (what i give to authentication) on my Webapp, when access the webpage. Can someboby help me ? I am trying many way but nothing. Thanks

server.modules += (
        "mod_dirlisting",
        "mod_staticfile",
        "mod_auth",
        "mod_authn_file" 
)

auth.cache = ("max-age" => "200")
auth.backend = "plain" 
auth.backend.plain.userfile = "/var/www/user/lighttpd-plain.user"  # insecure location; temporary; FIX
auth.require = ( "" => ("method" => "digest", "algorithm" => "SHA-256", "realm" => "password protected area", "require" => "valid-user") )

Do not post basic user-help questions in the lighttpd issue tracker. The lighttpd issue tracker is for issues in lighttpd.

After successful authentication, REMOTE_USER is set in the environment for backend scripts serving that authenticated request, e.g. mod_cgi, mod_fastcgi, mod_scgi, mod_ajp13, mod_magnet. Generate the page containing REMOTE_USER or set a cookie in your script.

This website is for the lighttpd web server, not how to write client webapps.
