My development machine is Windows. I use the htpasswd program that is part of the Windows XAMPP package, version 1.7.7, to generate a Windows Apache password file.
C:\xampp\apache\bin\htpasswd.exe -bc .htpasswd usename password
I need to generate a password file for a Redhat Linux machine but have no access to the htpasswd program on that machine. If I can generate a valid Linux Apache passwd on Windows then I can FTP it over to the Linux system.
The htpasswd documentation says that I can use the -d flag to force crypt() encryption which should work on Linux instead of the default MD5 encryption that works on Windows.
My problem is that
C:\xampp\apache\bin\htpasswd.exe -bcd .htpasswd usename password
generates a file but gives a message which says "Automatically using MD5 format".
How do I generate a valid Apache password file for a Linux machine from a Windows PC?
