Might be in a wrong section but how can you go about creating the authusers file using Apache? First of all, how can you find out the version of Apache? I'm not too sure what version I have. But more important, how can I encrypt passwords using crypt() without writing a C program of my own. If there's a program already out there that does this, where is it? I believe NCSA HTTPd comes with a program called htpasswd that already does this. What about Apache?

Instructions for using User Authentication with Apache can be found at http://www.apacheweek.com/features/userauth

A temporary replacement for htpassword can be found at http://free.prohosting.com/~funcraft/cgi-bin/test.pl?password To use it, replace password with the password that you want to encrypt (for example, if my password was chrisbolt you would go to http://free.prohosting.com/~funcraft/cgi-bin/test.pl?chrisbolt). The output will be printed in your browser so you can paste it into the authuser file. For some reason, the first two characters of your password do not get encrypted but it works when you paste it into the authuser file.
