PASSAP - .htpasswd application

Overview

Passap generates the contents for .htpasswd files used to control access under the Apache webserver. Other webservers may use identical files.

If you don't know that this means, they you probably don't need to use this application.

Use

Input: Input data is of the form:

name:password

...where name is login name and password is the password that user name must enter to have access to the controlled area. The input can have multiple lines, one for each login name. Simply copy/paste the input into the input space.

A realistic input might be:

alice:mypassword42
bob:otherpassword66

Output: Output data is of the same form as the input, except that the password is encrypted in a form that the webserver can use to authenticate the user. Simply copy and paste the output from the Passap output space into the .htpasswd file for upload to the webserver.

An output corresponding to the input example above may be:

alice:NraxNHg.hd/8A
bob:PwzDXNeM1oCkU

Note that the output is not unique; many different outputs correspond to any given input.
