.htpasswd

Recommended Posts

i just found myself looking at apache stats after having

guessed root:root for a response to the user/pswd

prompt while requesting apache stats from apanel.

 

:D

 

i've re-installed uniform server several times and thought

that i'd changed the passwords as per doc security sug-

gestions, but it looks like i missed apache's .htpasswd

at w:\www\.htpasswd this last time.

 

i would have guessed that 1. below controlled access

to apache stats from apanel, but no, 2. below did.

 

1. W:\htpasswd\home\admin\www\.htpasswd

2. W:\htpasswd\www\.htpasswd

 

what is apanel doing going through w:\www? (is it?)

 

this brings me back to my question: what's going on

with these directories?

 

1. why 4 'www' directories ? (ok, why 2 dirs? a is obvious and c may be obvious).

2. is the password for a. found in c and is the password for b found in d?, and

3. why is ~\home\admin\www named 'www'?

 

a. w:\www

b. w:\home\admin\www

c. w:\htpasswd\www

d. w:\htpasswd\home\admin\www

 

tia.
