I am having "issues" adding a new user. This is
reproducable every time on two different servers; one
Slackware, the other SuSE.
Go to Users and Groups
Add New User.
Complete form with new details [user name, full name,
normal password, all other items on default]
Click on "Create" button
"Failed to save user : The user was successfully saved,
but an error occured in another module :
htpasswd-file::useradmin_create_user failed : Missing
file to open at ../web-lib-funcs.pl line 731."
So I thought 'maybe this was a known issue and I should
check for module updates'.
Go to Webmin> Webmin Configuration > Upgrade Webmin >
Update Modules Now
Sure enough I get the following message:
Updating module htpasswd-file to version 1.2.
Latest version of Manage HTPasswd File.
/download/modules/htpasswd-file.wbm.gz (7607 bytes) ..

Great, I thought, that must be the fix.
No joy on adding new users - still the same error.
Plus repeated checking for module updates generates
same htpasswd-file download and 'update to version 1.2'
Also Usermin only intermittently recognises the new
user and allows access. Might be related?
Hope this can be fixed
