HOW TO CREATE A PASSWORD FOR A .HTPASSWD FILE USING PHP

Below is a PHP script that generates a password for .htpasswd from the clear text password stored in $clearTextPassword.

Please note: For Apache servers running on Windows you have to use the htpasswd program to generate passwords, or use the htpasswd generator.

How to use the code:

  1. Copy the above the code and paste it into your favorite text editor (ie notepad).
  2. Change “some password” to the password you want to encrypt.
  3. Save the code in file called htpasswd.php.
  4. Upload htpasswd.php to your webserver.
  5. Execute the code by going to http://www.your-domain.com/htpasswd.php
  6. The outputted text is your encrypted password.
