NAME
       htdigest - manage user files for digest authentication


SYNOPSIS
       htdigest [ -c ] passwdfile realm username



SUMMARY
       htdigest  is  used  to  create and update the flat-files used to store usernames, realm and password for digest
       authentication of HTTP users. Resources available from the Apache HTTP server can be  restricted  to  just  the
       users listed in the files created by htdigest.


       This  manual  page  only lists the command line arguments. For details of the directives necessary to configure
       digest authentication in httpd see the Apache manual, which is part of the Apache distribution or can be  found
       at http://httpd.apache.org/.
