htpasswd and htaccess problems

Postby tHatDudeUK » 16. March 2004 06:32

Using a pre-made php thingy and it gives the following results (I have also tried doing it manually at the command line.)

Creating default users
htpasswd -bc .htpasswd admin password 2>&1

$CommandStatus = 127
$CommandResult =
sh: line 1: htpasswd: command not found

Error occurred creating htpasswd file

Any ideas how to get this working?

Many thanks in advance

Regards

Hi,

try changing the command from:
Code: Select all
htpasswd -bc .htpasswd admin password 2>&1

to:
Code: Select all
/opt/lampp/bin/htpasswd -bc .htpasswd admin password 2>&1


this should work...

So long

Hi,

Many thanks for your prompt reply.

That command is created by the app I'm using off sourceforge called phpsurveyor..

Have you any idea what the 2>&1 does because I don't have a clue?

Is there a chance I have configured the paths in config.php in phpsurveyor wrong?

Many thanks

EDIT: No idea how it works or what it does but it worked and password protected the directory nonetheless :) Many thanks...

Hi,

just for the Archiv:
2>&1 means, do not output any errors I think....

Hi friends!

A single 2>&1 is in most cases senseless. It only says redirect output channel 2 to output channel 1.

Output channel 1 (aka STDOUT) is the normal way to output messages to the screen. Output channel 2 (aka STDERR) is the normal way to output errors to the screen.

Normally you will find a 2>&1 in conjunction with a > /dev/null. This will redirect normal messages (output channel 1) to the trash can /dev/null and error messages (output channel 2) to channel 1. So both normal and error messages will go into the virtual trash can /dev/null.
