Description Christopher Head 2008-04-27 18:10:29 UTC
The Apache ebuilds install the htpasswd and htaccess utilities in /usr/sbin. Since these are useful to non-root users (e.g. for writing directory-specific .htpasswd files for reference from .htaccess files), they should be in /usr/bin instead.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Apache (version 2.2.8).
Actual Results:  
The utilities go in /usr/sbin.

Expected Results:  
The utilities should go in /usr/bin.

there is no htaccess utility, htpasswd is symlinked to /usr/bin in 2.2.8-r1 now
Comment 2 Christopher Head 2008-06-01 18:13:00 UTC
Oops, of course I didn't mean htaccess, I meant htdigest :( sorry - the companion to htpasswd.
Comment 3 Christopher Head 2008-06-21 23:58:43 UTC
Uh, I have 2.2.8-r3 installed now, and I'm still not seeing either symlink (htpasswd or htdigest) in /usr/bin.
Comment 4 Christopher Head 2008-06-22 01:23:08 UTC
Just got 2.2.9, htpasswd is symlinked, htdigest not.
Comment 5 Benedikt Böhm (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-07-05 16:07:37 UTC
