I actually don't know the answer to this one. I know that there are Windows implementations of DB files, so I don't know of any particular reason for it not to work. But I've never tried it myself.

Summary

mod_auth_db allows you to keep your users, passwords, and groups, in DB files rather than text files. You get all the usual benefits of using a database rather than a text file--faster access and better data reliability, and consequently, you can have larger user lists than you could support with a text file of users.

Please let me know if there are other topics that you'd like for me to talk about in future columns. You can send your suggestions to me at ApacheToday@rcbowen.com And please let me know what you think of my columns, at that same address. Many thanks for reading down this far!
