.htaccess, Open Directory, and Leopard Server OS X Server
I was looking to set up .htaccess on Leopard server, and as I was testing the .htpasswd file I set up for the user (myself), I tried the wrong password and it let me in! It turns out I had used my regular password that's set up through Open Directory. So I deleted the .htpasswd file, and I removed all references to it in the .htaccess file to further test. This is the resulting .htaccess file:
AuthName "Server Access"
AuthType Digest
require valid-user
Just by using the above .htaccess file, I am able to login with any user that has an Open Directory account. Nice treat, for me anyway. I'm guessing others will have to add restrictions for users they don't want to have access.

At least in Tiger, there was an entire UI for this in Server Admin to control Realms.

I have to imagine that there is still something in 10.5

If you want to write your apache directives you can - but this is basic OS X server web functionality that has been there for some time...
