Bypassing htpasswd program?
Posted on 1997-02-23
I need to have certain areas of my web page restricted to only people with valid usernames and passwords. I will need many unique usernames.
I know how to accomplish what I want, but my ISP will not allow me to run the htpasswd program. I want to know if there is anyway to bypass using the htpasswd in creating usernames and encrypted passwords?
Is there a program that I can use offline that will encrypt the passwords for me and then I can just upload the password file? If I understand correctly, the htpasswd program encrypts in unix crypt format... Is there any Windows program that encrypts in the same format?
I have tried just uuencoding the passwords, but that doesn't seem to work at all. Is there anyway to do this?
