I have recently upgraded my Red Hat Distro from 7.3 to 8.0.
8.0, by default uses Apache 2, which I wasn't aware of.
I have a perl program that lets users manipulate password files that worked fine in apache 1.3, but now I get this curious error:
htpasswd: unable to create temporary file 'htpasswd.tmp.fsvnOz'
Of course, the name changes everytime. I know it's an permissions error, but I can't figure out where. My password file is kept in a top-level directory, outside of the server root, with permissions assigned to user apache, which is what the web server runs as. Even if I change permissions to a+wrx for the entire directory, it doesn't work.
