Apache (website building) question


Hi all,

This might need to be moved to the Networking forum, I don't know! Ok, I have a RH 8 machine running an apache server. This box hosts my website. I am having no connection problems since apache works "out of the box". However, I am very new to apache and was wondering some things. Most importantly, there is an area of the page that I want to password protect so only people whom I give the password to can get into. I actually have it set up that way now, but it's a cheesy javascript. All a surfer needs to do is view the source to get the username and password! Not very secure! This area will have pics and vids of my kids, so I only want to allow in people I know and trust, you know? That's the most important thing to me. Can someone tell me how to do this? Is it something I can do in HTML, or is it a function of Apache? Do I need cgi-bin? What is cgi-bin?! LOL. Thanks in advance for any help!

Chris

Why would you not trust other people with your kids pictures?

Think someone may track their GPS location by their skin tone or something?...

I'm figuring it'd be for friends/family only.... so only friends / and / or family would know about the URL, so there would be no reason to password protect it.


On any account... these links may help in your indevor

**** More results can be found by typeing "setting up htpasswd" in google search (without quotes)

You don't have kids, I assume. You and I both know that there are some serious perverts out there, and I will do everything in my power to protect my kids. That's the only reason.

Thanks for the links, they are exactly what I was looking for. I appreciate it.

Chris
