NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       htdigest [ -c ] passwdfile realm username

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       htdigest  is used to create and update the flat-files used
       to store usernames, realm and password for digest  authentication
  of  HTTP  users.   Resources  available from the
       httpd Apache web server can  be  restricted  to  just  the
       users listed in the files created by htdigest.

       This  manual  page  only lists the command line arguments.
       For details  of  the  directives  necessary  to  configure
       digest  authentication  in  httpd  see  the Apache manual,
       which is part of the Apache distribution or can  be  found
       at http://httpd.apache.org/.
