 |  Subject: [users@httpd] .htaccess - VMS system
 |       To:
 | - i need to protect certain pages. right now i use .htaccess and point it to
 | the VMS sysuaf. this works - but any account that is on the system can be
 | used to access the web pages. i'd like to make a .htpasswd file and just
 | keep a list of usernames/passwords in it. can this be done? i've tried just
 | making a text file called .htpasswd (which is listed in the .htaccess file
 | with AuthUserFile), which contains entries of "username:password". i get the
 | login prompt but can never enter an acceptable login.
 | - the people logging into this site only have access to the webpages (no
 | login privileges to the machine). is there some way they can have access to
 | change their own passwords? would it be possible to write some DCL code or
 | something to do this?

jason, it's been awhile since i played with apache on OpenVMS, but the CSWS has 
some good documentation, you might want to take a look at that, specifically:
