What are the length limits on usernames and psasswords entered via the Apache htpasswd app.?
I ask this because I created a really long password for one account that would not work (authenticate) until I shortened it -- I could probably try a million different length combinations, but if anyone knows for sure...
15 chars seems to be the limit for the password (MD5), and there seems to be no real limit on the username as it appears in plain text in the file.
This is using htpasswd.exe -b from Apache HTTPd v1.3.9 (Win32) in a command prompt (CMD.exe) on WinXP/Home/SP1.
Does that seem right? I'll do some more hacking around and see what I find out.
