HowTo change /srv/www/webxx/.htpasswd

    When I try to access webalizer stats for a site I get a 401 "not authorized" error when I enter the site administrator's ID and passwort.

    Apparently /srv/www/webxx/.htpasswd is not modified when I change the siteadmin or his password using ISPConfig.

    Is this due to an ISPconfig error, do I have to wait until some cron has done the job or is it possible to have .htpasswd updated each time I change the siteadmin or his passwort using another method?

    Thank you for you help.

    The password gets updated nightly when the stats get generated.

    If I wanted to access the stats immediately after a password change I could generate a password hash (MD5 ?) and insert it into .htpasswd It would be replaced by an identical value when the stats get generated. Is this so ?

    Thst not a md5 hash. But you can change passwords in .htaccess file from the commandline with the "htpasswd" program.
