Or is it webdav.htpasswd ?? ;-)


Brilliant ocifant! I did'nt even notice that, but you are right! My file was called webdav.htpasswd.

A simple copy and rename solved it!


Hi!!!! I have the same problem!!!! I'm almost crazy :(
Hoe do you rename the file? I can't rename the file with this extension!!
Thanks a lot!!!

Drag the file into your text editor then from the File menu select Save as then enter your new file name then click on Save.

Please be more specific. Do you get an error message when you try to rename?

I could rename the file, but now the problem I have is that the server doesn't recognize the password. I enter as user wampp and as password xampp is it right?
Thanks a lot!!!!!!!!!!!! Regards, Fabiana

User wampp and Password xampp is correct, unless you have changed them.

If it does'nt work try to create a new user
(replace %username% with a username of your choice):
1. Start command line: (Go to Start > Run > Type "cmd.exe")
2. Change directory to your xampp installation (cd "C:\xampp\apache\bin")
3. Create a password (htpasswd -n -m %username%)
4. Copy the output into your webdav.htpasswd file.

"C:\xampp\apache\bin" is my install path, yours might be different.

This example creates a htpassword for the user "fabiana" with the password "fabiana":
C:\xampp\apache\bin>htpasswd -n -m fabiana
New password: fabiana
Re-type new password: fabiana
fabiana:$apr1$mq1.....$tsy.0vkoFnn.X/ALfE3T41 <- this is the line to copy to your webdav.htpasswd file

I use Sunbird as the calendar client, and it seems it has lots of bugs with authentication. Some user/pass combinations work and some does'nt!
