Apache: htpasswd error


If I try to run htpasswd, such as:
# ./htpasswd -c /usr/local/apache2/passwords/passwords nick
I get the following error:
./htpasswd: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I am using Ubuntu 5.10 and Apache 2.20. Other than this, Apache works normally.

Any suggestions? Thanks!

APR stands for Apache Portable Runtime (I think), and the library file that "cannot be found" was most likely just not installed properly.

How exactly did you install Apache 2.20? Did you build it from source? Did you install it using a DEB package?
