Subject Re: Authentication using AuthUserFile
Date Fri, 02 Aug 2002 09:28:21 GMT
Hi, glad it works.

Delete users by deleting the row manually. If you can, use an editor that
preserve newlines, Notepad should do it.

You use groups like before (require group <group_name>),  and create a file
like the one you had by hand (there is no tool for that):
<group_name>: <username> ...

Good luck.

Regards,
Robert Andersson.
