It does now.* It did not when I first ran the
command, however
I just created the directory /passwd/passwords
and re
ran the command as root, and still no luck.
I think
you only need to create the directory /passwd, then use 'touch' to
create*the file, passwords*

Thanks Thomas,
Not familiar with the "touch" command, can you point me to info on it, or
the command syntax?
*Not sure if htpasswd creates the password file.*
If not, the as root, run:* touch passwords ,in the */passwd directory.* It will be an empty file, but
the 'htpasswd -c' should create this for you.
I think you
have a permissions problem so if you create the passwrds file with touch, you
probably won't be able to add the password to it using htpasswd
Where are you
creating these directories?* In the past when I used this, my passwd
directory was*/var/www/passwd/
