Password Script for Webpages

  [DELETED] 13:46 05 Aug 2003

I'm designing a website and would like an area for members only. Does anyone know of any free code or programme (CGI, PEARL etc.) that i could use so only 'members' were let in to this area?

I dont need it ultra secure but i want a page to appear prompting a username and passowrd before re-directing them to the 'member' page.

Hope that's clear!

click here and download the free trial of the password wizard. It's one of the best little password applications around, and very easy to set up and operate.

If you like it, you might decide to pay $25 for the registered version - it's not a fortune, and I think it's well worth it.

If your server supports .asp then I have a free .asp password system that works very well. If you want it I can email it to you. Your web host will be able to tell you whether it will work on the server or not.

I use .hta access on some of my remote folders - it's nothing special, but it does the job. All you need is a folder which stores usernames and passwords), and a file that is placed inside the folder you want to protect. When a user attempts to access a certain page, a username/password box will popup, and if their credentials are incorrect the page will not load (Authorisation Error)

It works for most, but not all, web-space providers.

and I'm glad you like it.

Bear in mind that anything like this is not going to be the world's most secure password protection. It's perfectly adequate for most situations though, and as you say, is easy to operate.
