Description Maxime 2013-05-04 03:56:02 UTC

I frequently use Apache and htpasswd utility, and with Apache 2.4.4 htpasswd seems to be broken.

Example (tried with Linux Fedora 18, and Windows 7 / 8) with MD5 password :

htpasswd -cm .htpasswd user_test

The .htpasswd generated don't works, Apache said to me "password mismatch" or similar.

With Apache 2.4.3, the .htpasswd works.

Same problem with clear text password :
htpasswd -cp .htpasswd user_test

With Apache 2.4.4 the password into .htpasswd is empty or false (I see specials characters and not the password in clear text).

With Apache 2.4.3, the the password into .htpasswd is clearly readable and works, in clear text.

Please, do you think you can fix that bug ?

Thank you ;)
