     htdigest - create and update user authentication files


     htdigest [-c] passwordfile realm username


     htdigest is used to create and update the flat-files used to store user-
     names, realms, and passwords for digest authentication of HTTP users.
     Resources available from the httpd(8) Apache web server can be restricted
     to just the users listed in the files created by htdigest.

     This manual page only lists the command line arguments. For details of
     the directives necessary to configure digest authentication in httpd(8),
     see the Apache manual, which can be found at /var/www/htdocs/manual/.

     The options are as follows:

     -c              Create the passwordfile. If passwordfile already exists,
                     it is deleted first.

     passwordfile    Name of the file to contain the username, realm, and
                     password. If -c is specified, this file is created if it
                     does not already exist, or deleted and recreated if it
                     does exist.

     realm           The realm name to which the username belongs.

     username        The username to create or update in passwordfile. If
                     username does not exist in this file, an entry is added.
                     If it does exist, the password is changed.
