Automating apache passwd accounts
« on: January 12, 2006, 04:04:18 PM »
Does anybody use an automated system for allowing users to sign up for an apache passwd user account?   The account would have to be approved first or else they would have to have a code or pin number to allow them to sign up.

I'm looking for a utility to handle this.  It must also be able to allow a user to recover their password. 

I purchased a commercial product a few years ago (password protector by ascad networks)  and it worked, but it had sooooo many features it was a real hassle to set up and use.  I've also used user_manage which is a perl module but it doesn't allow users to sign themselves up and it doesn't allow automated password recovery.

I can go to and find 1,000 scripts to do this but I'd like to hear from someone with first-hand experience with a product.
