Subject Apache security
Date Fri, 15 Feb 2002 22:08:55 GMT
I'm new to Apache and just starting to dive into it, on both Linux and
OpenBSD platforms.

A few quick questions about Apache security;

Is there a way to configure the following requirements regarding

-minimum password lengths (i.e. at least 8 characters)
-enforce password complexity requirements (mix of alpha-numeric
characters, plus special characters)
-expiration dates (i.e. "expire after 90 days")
-can users change their own passwords using htpasswd, through a web
interface (i.e. they don't have command shell access to the htpasswd

The files access_log, error_log, .htpasswd, and httpd.conf, all come
with default permissions of 644; can they be changed to 600 or 640
without breaking anything?
