Password Manager and database

I've been asked to help sort out a self-managed website which has a passworded folder for selected users to download files. Each user should be allocated a different set of files and the requirement is to be able to mark the files which have been downloaded. I can find scripts which will sort out password management but I can't figure how to incorporate that into a database for the files. A ready-made script would be nice so long as it's not too expensive. This website can use cgi scripts but not php or mysql. I must be using the wrong keywords - I can't find anything which does what I want.  Anyone with some pointers????

I found an old answer of myself to a similar question:

If you want to manage downloads, see statistics, password protect, etc etc........ then you could install a Perl or PhP program for managing your downloads. Here are a few scripts:

http://dynameks.com/cwu-btp/filetrans/

downloads/pfs.shtml">http://www.botmanfamily.net/aurelien/downloads/pfs.shtml

http://www.efileman.de/  (a lot of options and therefore a bit too complex maybe)

http://www.cgi-scripting.com/downloader.shtml
 
Ooo, and if you want to have a simple password protection, you can do it with Javascript:

http://javascript.internet.com/passwords/gatekeeper.html
or...
http://javascript.internet.com/passwords/login-coder.html 


And do you know sites like http://www.hotscripts.com ?

good luck!

Thanks for your help dutchfoxer. I spent 2 days messing about with efileman (most of your other links don't work). This program *almost* did what I wanted.  It gave me a good benchmark for comparisons. My client has decided to go with Upload Pro from http://www.perlscriptsjavascripts.com so we'll know if this was the right decision once it's installed and working.

Thanks.
