Validator: Htpasswd
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This validator uses htpasswd files, which are very common on Apache
web sever environments. It stores one line per entry with the user
name and a hash of the password.
Cherokee supports the following hash algorithms:
* MD5
* MD5-crypt
* Apache MD5
* SHA1
* crypt.
The htpasswd validator can use a flat-file generated by the Apache
link:http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/programs/htpasswd.html[htpasswd]
command.
