WHen I install servers, I don't select any options when it asks for
additional encryptions services (des, kerb, etc) during install.
We have frontpage 3.0 (98 extensions) setup and they seem to create des
passwords by default. I beleive our systems (not selecting any options)
installs md5 libcrypt. So frontpage never works after I setup a web, I
have to go use htpasswd to create a new password again, then everythign
Can I dropin a new libcrypt, do a make world or something to solve this
compadibability issue on a running server? Should I just re-compile
htpasswd and httpd to use des (is this possible with libcrypt using md5).
Just install the des distribution from the install media. The DES crypt
library understands MD5 so you don't need to convert your passwords. YOu
may need to rebuild some stuff if you want it to use DES vice MD5.
