Subject Re: basic authentication in apache 1.3.19 ignoring more than 8 characters in the password.
Date Wed, 10 Apr 2002 12:49:16 GMT
    Unfortunately, basic authentication just uses the standard UNIX crypt
function to create the password hashes.  8 characets is the limit.  You may
want to check out mod_auth_digest for longer passwords.
