Hello,
do you know if it's possible to learn to the windows version of apache to read htpasswd file encrypted by an unix computer (DES == crypt).

By default, it's not. It's possible with lounge version ?

Thanks a lot.

No this is not posible... they don't even work cross unix <-> linux <-> mac <-> freebsd (in some cases)

1) Apache check if the OS provides crypt() or not windows doesn't so it defaults to plain text... so if you have a crypt hash in there... windows treats it as plain text!
2) crypt() isn't the same on all platforms so some incompatibilites may show when using the same file on diferent flavours of linux or mac,...

Now for the solution:
Use MD5 or SHA1 for encryption, they work on all platforms so they shouldn't give a compatibility problem.

ok. For now i use php function crypt, under windows, and they are no problem. Your point 2 is strange, i'had never heard that.
