Re: How to protect website from access without authentication?

P: n/a
This isn't really a Python question -- it's a Web development
question. The easy answer is to just password protect the directory
all the pages are stored in, and require a password. This can be set
up using Apache or IIS.

If what you really meant to ask was how to prevent anyone from
accessing certain functionality, then you should look into using
sessions, and write the pages you're worried about to require an
authenticated session. This is better than the solution above for
several reasons: You can grant different levels of permission to
different users, you can revoke permission from some users while
allowing it for others, and you can allow your users to each have
their own password. Plus, you'll be able to log which user did what.

If this wasn't helpful, please be much more specific in restating your question.

Dear All,

We are developing a website and would like to password protect the whole
site.

If any user visit our site using ip address or using the http link, he/she
will be asked for login password and then granted the access to whole site
based on the correct password. Help will be appreciated.

Thank & Regards,
Mike
