This article defines the Apache .htpasswd file and how it functions with an Apache HTTP server.
The Apache HTTP server allows a user to configure two files which restrict access to content by "authorized" eyes only. Passwords will be stored in an encrypted format and the username will be in plaintext. One of these files which create this restricted access is the Apache .htpasswd file, a flat-file used to store usernames and password for basic authentication on an Apache HTTP Server.
