Item10999: ApacheHtpasswdUser unit tests failing on Windows

Priority: Normal
Current State: Closed
Released In: 1.1.4
Target Release: patch
Applies To: Engine
Component: ApacheHtpasswdUser, PlatformWindows
Reported By: GeorgeClark
Waiting For:
Last Change By: GeorgeClark
The issue is that on windows, Apache::Htpasswd will auto-select MD5 encoding. This requires a longer salt than the Crypt (DES) encoding default used on Linux.

Since encryption type can be configured to be MD5 or Crypt, this probably needs to be configurable to improve portability, otherwise moving a .htpasswd file will cause and encoding change and will invalidate the passwords.
