Tool htaccess Password Generator - dynamicdrive

Its a secure means of protection if you have a handful of user/password combination that don’t need to change frequently. If you need the list to change often then you have two options.

  1. Running back to this generator and manually updating the files.
  2. Create a script that generates it for you (like this dynamicdrive does) and modifies the files automatically using the fwrite command in PHP.

In short, you need to encrypt your passwords (which gives it some of its security). This tool will help you with that and format everything accordingly.

.htaccess Example

AuthName "Restricted Area"
AuthType Basic
AuthUserFile /home/mysite/.htpasswd
AuthGroupFile /dev/null
require valid-user
