Validator: Plain
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The plain validator uses a flat-file to authenticate users.
Syntax
^^^^^^
Each line defines a user. The username and password are delimited by a ``:``
colon.
[[parameters]]
Parameters
^^^^^^^^^^
[cols="20%,80%",options="header"]
|=============================================================
|Parameter |Description
|__passwdfile__ |Required. The location of the user/pass file.
|=============================================================
The parameter that specifies the file containing the pairs
'user:password' is mandatory. `Plain` authentication can use both
`Basic` and `Digest` schemes.
You can and should place the password file outside the web tree to
prevent remote users from accessing the list.

This could be the contents of the the file `/var/www/passwd` specified
in this example:
****
testuser:testpassword
cherokee:webserver
****
This would only allow access to the users `cherokee` and `testuser`.
