Htpasswd accesses apache-compatible password files. Passwords are matched to a realm where they are valid. For security, the path for a password database should be stored outside of the paths available to the HTTP server.

Htpasswd is intended for use with WEBrick::HTTPAuth::BasicAuth.

To create an Htpasswd database with a single user:

htpasswd = WEBrick::HTTPAuth::Htpasswd.new 'my_password_file'
htpasswd.set_passwd 'my realm', 'username', 'password'
Show files where this class is defined (1 file)
