I wont to make a WWW page that will ask you  what your username and password is. I want the script to check in the database, if there are correct. (there may be a lot of username's and password's associated to it). Please help.

Adam.

With the passwords on the server, you need serverbased security.
Are you asking how to implement server side JavaScript security or how to get clientside JavaScript to interact with a database?

You best bet in any case is serverside and if you have a database running on the server you must surely be allowed to modify the security settings of your pages. This is a job for the system administrator. (unix is mostly using the .htaccess files, NT is using the NT protection and ASP can also help some)

For clentside password protection, have a look at http://passwords.javascriptsource.com

The script below is not mine - so please keep the header information.  It is a very good script that "masks" the actual password. I have not been able to crack it thus far.

BTW - You can change the script so that the user must type in his name or handle rather than pick it from a menu (as well as the password).
