    Password-Protected Entry

    I'm not sure if this is the right forum category to post this question, but here goes:

    Could someone please tell me how I'd go about adding a password-protected entry to my website, or a certain page of my website?

    Thanks alot.

    If you are on an Apache server, you can use .htaccess. Google should have plenty of information on restricting access with .htaccess...

    I reject your reality and substitute it with my own!

    From what I understand, my host offers PHP, Perl, and Java.

    Then there's a VERY good chance it's running on Apache.

    You can password protect directories with .htaccess so it is worth looking into.
    More of a journal than a blog.

    Truly great madness cannot be achieved without significant intelligence.

    Naming the actual file

    When I tried to create a file literally named ".htaccess", I was not able to do so because Windows had required me to enter a file name. Does this sound familiar to anyone?

    Notepad won't let you create an .htaccess file. However, most HTML editors will, and you can create it directly on your server via FTP if you have to.
    Thousand different paths
    So many sterile ends
    I chose the Devil's path

    Never shall the sun kiss my face
    And caress me with it's burning light
    For I dwell in the shadows
    And sleep side by side with death
