Lost Password file when user deleted
I set up a test user in htpassword and then deleted that user.
htpassword was not recognised as a valid file so I deleted it figuring that it was now just a standard text file <blush>

How do I set up a replacement htpassword file please ?
Sorry - it's such a newbie question ... but I tried searching this site and others for hours without luck before I plucked up the courage to be so publicly ignorant <g>.

I really need to use htpassword and not htpasswd as another company has this as their entry to my system or I'd just have

is there an htpasswd file there??

if so just copy and re-name it to...........htpassword

goofing around as root can be "deadly"..........never delete anything until you know exactly what it does or doesn't do or what it is used for...........
