This question about Upgrading from TWiki to Foswiki: Closed unanswered

Can I reuse the TWiki .htpasswd file?

I am upgrading from TWiki version Fri, 31 Mar 2006 build 9626 for Foswiki 1.08. The upgrade instructions say to copy my data/.htpasswd file over from TWiki to Fosswiki. However my TWiki password doesn't work. Both the old and new installations are using crypt. Am I going to have to ask all my users to change their passwords, or is there some simple thing I can do to allow the old passwords to work? Thanks.

(later) It appears that I can reuse the .htpasswd file on the same host, the problem was that I was not only migrating from TWiki to Foswiki, but also using another host. Presumably the crypt salt is different on the other machine.

Hello Tim, does this mean you have answered your own question? Or would you like more input on this problem?
