I've got a password protected beedoobup set up on my virtual server and i want to change the password... I know I need to edit the .htpasswd file but how do I generate the password? Is there a program or cgi that will do it for me? I tried 'The Commander' but without luck...
Thanks for helping!
htpasswd /path/to/.htpasswd <username> <password>
That will then add a new user to the file with the correctly encrypted password.
To change the password you're probably best off deleting the current user and then using the above command to create the username again with the new password.
I used this for several years before switching to a windows server. I like it alot.
I noticed they have a newer version as well.
