 Thanks to Steve Rieger and Yura Pismerov.
This is an issue with the crypt library being used (old version) The
solution is to choose a different encryption method for the passwords
(MD5 for example).
Original Question

  I am configuring an Apache server (Apache 2.0.49) with mod_auth_mysql
  and the server
  is only requiring the first 8 characters of the password (it behaves
  same way with mod_auth_dbm).
  I would like to force it to require the full 20, but can't seem to
  anything on this topic.
  Just to give an example,
  If I set my PW to 1longtestpassword
  I can log in with PW of 1longtes
  Any and all help appreciated. --
