May I know how can I set up a web site with password protection (at the entry / main
Hi to all,
i actually wrote a java applet that reads a txt file that you put on the server. you could hard code a password into the java applet however if you liked I suppose, but I wanted it to be dynamic.... the nice pard of it was that unless the directory is viewable by anyone, I could name the txt file whatever I wanted to, and the chances of someone guessing it were pretty **** slim.
it is possible, and since you can't see the source for on applet (at least not easily), it might be your best solution
The only thing i have to add is that a friend put a password protection thing on his site and the host took down his site for it! Said he breached his contract. But I think they just wanted tog et rid of him cos it was a free place that started charging for their space and wanted to get rid of all the ppl still not paying
See if your web host (ISP) supports network validation (NT/Unix). Probably won't with a basic package as one (the ISP) needs to maintain the list of users. This can be done on the server at the folder level, so all files are protected. This is great for intranets.
Then there is server side validation through scripts (ASP, JSP, CGI...) and maintaining session information.
May seem a simple task, but security is non-trivial.
The most basic I've worked with is .htaccess. Seems easy enough to set up, too.
I never said it was a good solution qball. But if you can't use a server side database or any of that stuff, it may be all that you have. and anyway, no matter what type of security you have, someone can get into it even if they're not supposed to. it just depends if that many people are really going to care about what is there!
here are a few sites you can find password protection at
