Hi,

Is there any way I can change user passwords in .htaccess file using PHP.

Any help or suggestions are appreciated.

Thanks.

There's no quick, one-line way of doing it that I know of. However, it should be pretty trivial to code something to take care of it. You'd just need to read the contents of the htpasswd file (using fopen()/fread() in PHP4, or file_get_contents() in PHP5), then replace the existing password hash with the new one using something like preg_replace() and write the new file.

This could of course require the htpasswd file to be world-writable depending on your server-configuration, which might be a security consideration you should keep in mind.
