Default md5 passwords enabled with webalizer and awstats add-on

I've enabled md5 passwords (instead of crypt) for user accounts. I've also installed the awstats add-on. I'm having trouble with authentication with apache when trying to access both site.com/stats/ and site.com/awstats/. Since the password is copied from /etc/shadow (which is set to md5) the .htpasswd file is populated with md5 style passwords. At the same time, the .htaccess files generated use 'Authtype Basic'.
Can I use md5s with Authtype Basic?
Should I modify the script to create Digest auth or just revert to crypt style accounts?
Any opinions?

thanks guys.

No. The passwords from ISPConfig are extended crypt passwords and not simple md5 hashes. The naming in the config file is a bit misleading.

Get ISPConfig support and the ISPConfig 3 manual from ispconfig.org.
