Hello...I'm having a little problem...I use the authorisation codes...htaccess etc. in combination with a database, now my question....if someone gets on my page and isn't a member, he/she gets the registrationform and the next time they log on the uid and passwd is automatically inserted into the window-box....how does that work? and is it possible to get the other information (name etc.) from the registration form in that same way, so you have all the information you need, without asking the uid and passwd AGAIN..?....Thanx in advange,JeroenPs.. I use Apache 1.1. Server and the Auth_Msql-package...What I really would like to know is if it's possible (and how?) to get more information (from the database where the UID and Passwd are)without the need to ask the UID and Passwd again? So now the comp. knows the UID and Passwd, but I'm sure you can get other information too...'cause I don't have to give my email-address here when I ask a question, I'll bet they (you) get them from the database, which is created when I registered myself.....I hope my question is clear now.....please help me...:-)

You really dont give much background about exactly what password you mean, however the passwords are maintained in the \Windows\???.pwl file.  Your uid is the name of the file with a pwl extension.

Also look at Control Panel - Passwords.

Hope this helps.   Cheers,
