Howto create a password for a htpasswd file using PHP
A user emailed me and asked how to create a password for a .htpasswd file using PHP. It is actually very simple.
Below is a PHP script that generates a password for .htpasswd from the clear text password stored in $clearTextPassword.
Please note: For Apache servers running on Windows you have to use the htpasswd program to generate password.
// Password to be encrypted for a .htpasswd file
Howto use the code:
[*]Copy the above the code and paste it into your favorite text editor (ie notepad).
[*]Change some-password to the password you want to encrypt.
[*]Save the code in file called htpasswd.php.
[*]Upload htpasswd.php to your webserver.
[*]Execute the code by going to http://www.your-domain.com/htpasswd.php
[*]The outputted text is your encrypted password.
You can ofcourse also use the htpasswd-generator if you dont want your own script.
