Hello, Rolling Eyes
Taking over a website because the webmaster quit and left me high and dry. Anyway, Iím trying to educate my in htaccess and htpasswd. Our website is already set up using htaccess for a memberís only area and everything works great. I just wanted to learn how to edit the present members list. And donít know how the past webmaster was doing it. What I have done so far is educate myself on htaccess and so far gotten the concept of how it works. Iím just stumped on how the passwords are associated with the encrypted file. I know there are online htaccess password encryption sites that will do this for you but I come up with a different encryptions every time I use them for the same password. Guess, what Iím trying to say is, I can encrypt the password but how do I associate them with the real (text) password and actually get the file where it need to be with out screwing this up. Do I FTP directly into the server or do I use something like WS_FTP to upload or download these files? Still learning and kind of confused with this. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

I suggest you read the comments at the bottom of this page:

They should clear up your confusion on obtaining different passwords every time.

After doing some testing I figured out how the .htpasswd was woking. I was kind of lost concerning this issue. So, I discovered that getting a random password basiclly form any website will work. As soon as I put the new generated password into the .htpasswd file it automaticlly associates it to the username with no special tricks. At least that what I figured.

Thanks again
