I wondered if anyone could help me. I've had a look around to no result.

I want to password protect a page, but I want the password to be self-changing based on a set pattern, for example the password could be todays date with a letter on the end (e.g. 16509a today, then 170509b tomorrow, then 180509c) etc. If not that, then read a password from a list of passwords from another file.

I am not familiar with programming for the web and wondered if anyone knew of any self-changing scripts of this nature.

Many thanks
