    Right, i have a webserver at home, on my network, and i want a simple PHP/MySQL/HTML page that requires a login to get to the web pages stored on my server, i have phpMyAdmin on there, and someone could entirely screw up my coursework (I have to do an e-commerce website) if they got to the phpMyAdmin (which at the moment they can. But i need certain people from the net to be able to access certain areas. Is there a simple script to do this? I'm just beginning to do php at the moment, but not got that far yet!!

    to make phpMyAdmin set up so that you can log in you will need to go into the config file which is go in there and there is a line that looks kind of like this:
    $cfg['Servers'][$i]['auth_type']     = 'http';    // Authentication method (config, http or cookie based)?
    this is where you set up what kind of authentication you want to use. the default is none. i personally set mine up to http as you can see this is what i recommend personally. then to log into this you will jst use your root account that you set up with mysql. hope this helps

    edit: do you also what to make specified directories password protection. if so there is a configuration that you have to change in the httpd.conf file to allow this and then you have to set it up. sorry i really dont know how to set it up because i did it once thru webmin and dont know how to do it manually

    Cool, that's all workin now! Wasn't too bothered about anything else, jus didn't want people being able to screw me over for my databases! I guess even if they did, and i was at uni, and i had a sql file, i could jus ssh me computer, then rebuild it!
