Newbee Trying to Create Login/Password Control on Homepage

P: n/a
Hi

I'm using DreamWeaver 2004 on a Win2k machine to create my homepage.
After spending several hours of mingling with ASP I discover that my
ISP doesn't support Access databases. So I turned to MySQL...

However now I'm stuck. I created the files describes in this tutorial:
http://www.gidforums.com/t-887.html

But I know next to nothing about SQL. For example - where is the
database. Is is just dynamic on the server someplace and how can I
refer to it?

The only thing I need is to make a password protected page, is it
really do difficult - or could one just place the password in a text
file on the server someway. Or can you guys direct me to a better
tutorial for making a password protected HTML page?

And specifically if I use SQL, how do I place the entries in the SQL
database in the first place?

Thanks

Klaus

If you only want a password protected page you don't necessarily need
MySQL. For example, you could also just configure Apache to use HTTP
authentication. Check out
http://httpd.apache.org/docs/howto/auth.html
how to configure Apache for HTTP authentication.
