generate htaccess password (htpasswd) from the command line

# If you don’t current have an .htpasswd, use the “-c” option to create the file # with the first user. It will prompt you for a password and encrypt it for you. htpasswd -c /var/www/ user1 # If you already have the .htpasswd file and would like to append a new user, # repeat the command with the “-c” htpasswd /var/www/ user2 # .htpasswd is the standard file name that contains the authentication credentials, # but you can actually call it whatever you want as long as you reference it in the # .htaccess file: AuthName "Restricted Area" AuthType Basic AuthUserFile /var/www/ AuthGroupFile /dev/null require valid-user
