What does this mean, and how do I fix it?

Protected Web Directories

Digest encryption is enabled in the module configuration, but the htdigest command needed for it is not installed.

This is on Suse 10.0

I think there was a bug about this (maybe you filed it, even). SUSE calls it htdigest2 on Apache version 2…Anyway, I think this has been fixed in a recent version. If not, it’s definitely bug-tracker material.


I fixed this with a simlink from htdigest2 to htdigest. Virtualmin was calling htdigest SuSE renamed this to htdigest2. With the symlink in place all is well.
