SYNOPSIS

http://your.site.name/cgi-bin/xschpass/~ username / directory

DESCRIPTION

xschpass’ is a program that lets remote users change the password that they use to access a protected web-directory with the xs-httpd webserver. This allows users to set a password that is only known by themselves and not even by the person who controls the web-directory and who set up the initial password.

Accounts can not be added or removed through the web-interface - this can only be done by a person with local directory access through xspasswd(1). Also the access type (basic or digest) can only be changed with xspasswd(1); if both basic and digest authentication are enabled for a user, then setting a new password using xschpass(1) will update both passwords.

EXAMPLES

To change the password that is used to access the URL

 http://your.site.name/~johans/protected/index.html

one should visit the following xschpass’ location:

 http://your.site.name/cgi-bin/xschpass/~johans/protected/
