$_SERVER["PHP_AUTH_USER"]
$_SERVER["PHP_AUTH_PW"]
$_SERVER["PHP_AUTH_TYPE"]

http://www.php.net/manual/en/features.http-auth.php

lets say you made files called after username, for example after me, and file is bljak.inc.php

<?php
if(!isset($_SERVER["PHP_AUTH_USER"]))
{
  $file = "access_denied.php";
} else {
  $file = $_SERVER["PHP_AUTH_USER"].".inc.php";
}
include($file);
?>
