I found this documentation about authenticating in apache using Django
However, since Django is now recommending mod_wsgi in favor of mod_python, the techniques described here no longer work (if mod_python is not installed).
I don't know enough of mod_wsgi or mod_python to have a solution – I suggest you ask Graham for this –, but at least change the docs to mention that you'll need mod_python installed instead of mod_wsgi for this to work.
