CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

SUMMARY

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 Apache HTTP 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/.

OPTIONS

-c Create the passwdfile. If passwdfile already exists, it is deleted first.

username
