Synopsis: .htpass does not work - password mismatch error

State-Changed-From-To: open-closed
State-Changed-By: coar
State-Changed-When: Wed May  3 13:08:35 PDT 2000
State-Changed-Why:
Different operating systems often use different algorithms
for their crypt() routine.  This means that .htpasswd files
are commonly not transportable.

If you add the '-m' flag to your htpasswd command, the
passwords will be encrypted using a common MD5 algorithm
that is built into Apache.  Passwords that are encrypted
this way will work on any system, and the files are
portable.
