Hi guys,

I wanted to know how I would go about making a dynamic .htaccess file for Directory Protection. I know how to manually edit the file to protect my Directory, but I now want to make use of the large collection of Usernames/Passwords which I have in a MySQL Database, to use as logins for my Directory.

Any ideas?

If you didn't quite understand what I was trying to say, please let me know, and I'll try re-word myself a bit better.

Cheers!

If you didn't encrypt ur user's password, you can export it to .htpasswd file
and edit your htaccess like this

    AuthUserFile /home/USERNAME/.htpasswd
    AuthName "restricted access"
    AuthType Basic
    <Limit GET>
    require valid-user
    </Limit>
if you encrypt ur user's password, I don't have any idea :D
