Starting place for secure login
Posted on 2002-07-09
Hi. I'm not getting too much help from my host regarding how to setup a secure login for a web page i'm building. Here's what I know about my host (basically running phpinfo() function).
Loaded modules are as follows:
mod_php4, apache_ssl, mod_setenvif, mod_so, mod_expires, mod_auth, mod_access, mod_alias, mod_userdir, mod_actions, mod_imap, mod_asis, mod_cgi, mod_dir, mod_autoindex, mod_include, mod_status, mod_negotiation, mod_mime, mod_log_config, mod_env, http_core
My home directory looks like this:
Our web server is: apache-ssl on a linux o/s
It looks like I have to put my stuff into the secure directory but I want to know which encryption schemes I can use when registering new administrators on the web.
I looked on PHPBuilder and followed one of the tutorials but I don't think we have that module installed. I'm in need of a ton of help. What can I read that applies to the modules I have above?
