How to Add a Secure Page


I need to add a secure page to a web site and from there being able to add PDF and/or word documents but only some people can have access to these doc and not the general public.  

Also once logged in the user should not be promped for user name/pass. for every doc.

I found a couple of articles on line that describe how to do it but no luck.


RE: How to Add a Secure Page

The easiest way would be to use a scripting language such as Perl or PHP to achieve this task. Your Usernames and passwords could be stored in a flat file or a database depending on complexity. I would always go for the database option as it allows for future expansion.
