What is htpasswd?
Htpasswd is a command tool for the open source http server apache httpd for generating password files for http basic authentication.
What is the difference between encryption methods?
MD5: Encrypt password using MD5. On Windows, Netware and TPF, this is the default encryption method. Crypt: Use crypt() to encrypt the password. This is the default on platforms other than Windows, Netware and TPF. Although it is supported by htpasswd on all platforms, it is not supported on httpd servers on Windows, Netware and TPF.
SHA: Use SHA to encrypt the password. It is designed to be easily ported or ported to Netscape using the LDAP Directory Interchange Format (ldif).
Plain: No encryption, use plain text passwords. Although htpasswd can create such passwords on all platforms, the httpd backend only supports plain text passwords on Windows, Netware and TPF.
Why do you want to make it online?
If we don't use apache server, for example, use nginx, etc., we may not be able to generate password files without this command line tool. The online version can be used by server administrators.
