login system for users to access their own folder

P: 84
hi there, im currently writing a program in vb6 that will eventually be able to retrieve data from an online xml sheet

it will have a user base where each user has its own xml sheet and that only them (via username and password) will be able to access it and reads

so each user will have its own directory like

site.com/user1/values.xml.


im not that strong on the web side and have only really done simple html sites, is ther an example or something i can download that has a small log in system (prob stored in a mySQL DB) that allows you only have access to one folder.

i was then looking at would it be easier to connect to an online database for each user (just as mysql) and just make an account for each user and only allow them into a percific folder on the databse ?

im finding this really hard to explain, if anyone wants add me to msn : Removed Email Addressand i will try to explain better :(

well i hope that made sense :D

P.S: i was thinking about the whole mysql business and i think it would be to complecated...i would need to make the host allow remote connects , find there ip and that, i think the xml option is muchmore simple and fits my needs.
