Compatibility Compatible - no manual interaction needed

In a standalone installation the path /usr/local/nagios/etc is not writable by the apache user.
The user management module tried to create a file /usr/local/nagios/etc/htpasswd.new and rename it to /usr/local/nagios/etc/htpasswd afterwards -> failed
The workaround is that no htpasswd.new file will be created on standalone installations. The user management module now directly writes in htpasswd.
