#2044 "Add new user" fails - cannot update htpasswd module

lee stone

Hello Jamie

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
Error message:
"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) ..
Received 1024 bytes (13 %)

Received 6144 bytes (80 %)
Received 7168 bytes (94 %)
Received 7607 bytes (100 %)
.. Download complete.
Installed module Manage HTPasswd File (65 Kb)"

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'
every time.

Also Usermin only intermittently recognises the new
user and allows access. Might be related?

Hope this can be fixed

    I've released a further update to this module which fixes this
    problem - you can download it in the same way.

    I installed the update this morning, and it still does not
    work. I had to just delete the module to get rid of the
    error message. :-(
