The command to change the password is (assumes apache/bin is in the path)

	% htpasswd <password file> <user name>

The -c flag is used to create the password for new user.

Subject: removing those htaccess passwords (was Re: [thelist] admin:

I've got a question about this. We did just this a couple years back, but 
now we've got a situation where we do not have some of the passwords any 
more - case of changing personnel. Is there a way to disable/remove these 
passwords, without knowing what they are?
