Description of problem:
I currently have Apache configured to work with Tomcat. When I try to create a new htpasswd file or add users to an existing file, I get this:

# htpasswd -c test testuser
New password: 
Re-type new password: 
htpasswd: could not determine temp dir

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Expected Results:  Valid htpasswd user entry.

If you're really on Fedora Core 2, you need to upgrade to the FC2 apr
package, which doesn't have this bug.  This is a bug in the FC1 apr
Comment 2 Joe Orton 2004-07-23 16:47:27 EDT
Run "up2date apr" to make sure you have the latest apr package for
Fedora Core 2.  If you're really on FC1, this is a dupe of bug 128144.

I'm having same issue while using the following packages:



It was working yesterday before I upgraded the httpd packages
Not sure if I need to downgrade the apr packages?
Comment 4 Joe Orton 2004-08-20 02:00:45 EDT
If you have any package version "0.9.5" of apr or apr-util package,
you have third party packages installed (e.g. David Summer's
Subversion package set).  You need to remove these and install Fedora
versions, e.g

service httpd stop
rpm --erase --nodeps apr apr-devel apr-util apr-util-devel
up2date apr apr-util apr-devel apr-util-devel
