    9595Tracd allows you to run Trac without the need for Apache, but you can take advantage of Apache's password tools (`htpasswd` and `htdigest`) to easily create a password file in the proper format for tracd to use in authentication. (It is also possible to create the password file without `htpasswd` or `htdigest`; see below for alternatives)

    97 Make sure you place the generated password files on a filesystem which supports sub-second timestamps, as Trac will monitor their modified time and changes happening on a filesystem with too coarse-grained timestamp resolution (like `ext2` or `ext3` on Linux, or HFS+ on OSX).

    99101Tracd provides support for both Basic and Digest authentication. Digest is considered more secure. The examples below use Digest; to use Basic authentication, replace `--auth` with `--basic-auth` in the command line.
     
    139141This section describes how to use `tracd` with Apache .htpasswd files.

    141   Note: It is necessary (at least with Python 2.6) to install the fcrypt package in order to
    142   decode some htpasswd formats.  Trac source code attempt an `import crypt` first, but there
    143   is no such package for Python 2.6. Only `SHA-1` passwords (since Trac 1.0) work without this module.
     143  Note: On Windows It is necessary to install the fcrypt package in order to
     144  decode some htpasswd formats. Only `SHA-1` passwords (since Trac 1.0) work
     145  without this module.

    145147To create a .htpasswd file use Apache's `htpasswd` command (see [#GeneratingPasswordsWithoutApache below] for a method to create these files without using Apache):
