The script didn't work on my system at first because I use md5
encryption in my .htpasswords file. In other words, setting the
htpasswd -nmb SomeUser somepw >>local/.htpasswd
does not work, but
htpasswd -nb SomeUser somepw >>local/.htpasswd
does. My system passwords are also md5, so I presume the results
would be the same for a passwd.local file.
The PHP documentation says "The encryption type is triggered by the
salt argument." Based on that, I would expect it to work
The authuser.php script is very useful and characteristically well
done. Thanks Pm.
