Description: ------------ Starting from Auth 1.3.1 the addUser() method fails to add new users into passwd file. This is caused by line 170 in Auth/Container/File.php. Call to addUser() is made on a copy of $pw_obj. Thus the next call to save() is made on a different object which does not have the added user. -cut- $res = call_user_func_array(array($pw_obj, 'addUser'), $params); -cut- Passing by reference fixes the problem: -cut- $res = call_user_func_array(array(&$pw_obj, 'addUser'), $params); -cut- See it live at: Test script: --------------- <?php require_once 'Auth.php'; $a = new Auth('File', '.htpasswd', 'displayLogin'); $a->removeUser('username'); print '<pre>'; readfile('.htpasswd'); print "-- cut --\n"; $a->addUser('username', 'password', 'additional'); readfile('.htpasswd'); print '</pre>'; ?> Expected result: ---------------- test:fcfKBtvEwG4g.:test -- cut -- test:fcfKBtvEwG4g.:test username:eLh9x1r7U3Tzo:additional Actual result: -------------- test:fcfKBtvEwG4g.:test -- cut -- test:fcfKBtvEwG4g.:test

This bug has been fixed in CVS. If this was a documentation problem, the fix will appear on by the end of next Sunday (CET). If this was a problem with the website, the change should be live shortly. Otherwise, the fix will appear in the package's next release. Thank you for the report and for helping us make PEAR better.
