Hi!

I rented some megabytes on my provider's server and have my homepage running on it.

Now my problem: I have some files that should only be accessed by people who enter a specific login name and password. Is this technically possible for me (I may run Perl scripts)

First, ask your provider if you can implement htaccess. If so, you can obtain a htaccess tutorial here:

Otherwise, you can do it a different way by using the following Perl script:

htaccess would be my preferred route if you have the choice.
