    I've been able to configure security (via myhosting's dotnet password protection script) on several of the folders on my site, but I would like to add an easier way for my clients to access them. Currently, they have to browse to a folder, then the login page comes up. What I would like is a webpage at the root that allows the user to login, then it takes them to a specific secure folder based on their login name. I have zero experience programming in, so I don't even know where to begin with a project like this, but I can't imagine it is all that difficult. Anyone with some advice?

    A project like this can be done easily in PHP. I won't layout the code, but some things to consider are encrypting the passwords with SHA-1, and being careful with SELF variables in your script.
    If you have no experience with PHP, you can hire a freelancer to do it for you online. I could get the project done in perhaps two weeks.

      CoffeeCup Software

      You could also use CoffeeCup's Website Access Manager:

      It costs about $34. The client runs on Windows only, and you must have PHP installed on the server.
