[Solved] How to create .htpasswd in this format? "1:5:" 19 decimal digits ":" 64 hex digits

Added by dxjones 4 months ago

I am running lighttpd/1.4.54 on embedded Linux 4.9.236+

The file .htpasswd is not the expected format:

1:5:1234567890123456789:0123456789abcdef0123456789abcdef0123456789abcdef0123456789abcdef

That's 19 decimal digits and 64 hex digits.

What commands are used to create this file format?

I am guessing the last part my possibly be SHA1 hash of (username ":" realm ":" password) but I'm not sure.

Any suggestions appreciated.

Have you tried reading through the mod_auth documentation?

BTW, some distros ship a package named httpd-tools which contains the program htpasswd, which can be used to managed .htpasswd files.
