Password protection - password created by users
Posted on 1998-11-05
I need a password protection program, run on a server that lets users create their own User Name and Password once they arrive on the page.
After the password is created, then I need a way for the usual UserName/Password box to pop up. The person enters their user name and password -- and then is given access to the restricted directories of the web site.
In addition, I need a way for the Administrator to easily go into the password lists and add/delete users. It would be also be great if the Administration area would let the Administrator select the length of time the users' passwords would be valid -- i.e. 1-2-3 months, etc.
I don't want java to play a part in this solution. Strictly CGI-BIN scripting. I don't know anything about CGI -- but would it be possible for the script to work on both UNIX and NT servers?
