password protected page
I am currently working on a website for a volunteer ambulance corp. I am using Dreamweaver. I need a members only page that is password protected so only squad members can enter to retrieve sensitive material.
Does anyone know a really good but easy script that I can use? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
Web servers can password protect directories
Server side languages such as PHP can password protect pages effectively.
What I am trying to do is when someone clicks on a link/button to a members only page, the page opens with just a place to post your password. If correct password is entered then it brings you to a page with links to members only pages.
You should definitely use a server-side langauge for security issues in my opinion.

server side languages come in all varieties. however, the precursor to using a server side language is determining what your host supports. for example, commonly used server side languages are:
what server side means essentially is that code is run on the server (therefore invisible to the client) which can perform special actions that the client (generally) cannot interfere with.
so in the case of password protection, the client sends the server info, and the server checks it behind the scenes with no way for the client to try and peek to see whats going on. then the server does something (deny/allow) based on the information the client sent.
so once you find out IF your host supports a server side language, then you go to the appropriate form and post your question there. they can then give you the code that youd "paste into a webpage".
