Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Basically what I'm trying to do is use Apache::MP3 to host my music and only allow myself and selected other people to use it. Apache::MP3 streams don't work under ssl encryption so I'm trying to figure out a workaround. Is it possible to redirect internally without using an external URL address? For example, say I have www.mysite.com. www.mysite.com goes to my IP which is port forwarded to my server which uses address 192.168.2.4 port 2525. This port uses ssl so the index.html redirects to /somedirectory/auth.html where somedirectory requires a login. I set it up this way instead of having the main directory require a login because it appears that the ssl encryption doesn't kick in before the login, which I couldn't understand. Anyhow, after a valid user/pass is entered I would like to redirect to 192.168.2.4 port 2526. However 192.* is local so the redirect doesn't work. Is there a way I can either redirect to a different port or fetch the information I want and not have it be under SSL? Sorry if I'm vague or didn't include enough information, I'm pretty familiar with Linux but I'm just learning about the Apache server and SSL and what not.
I'm using SSL to encrypt the password. I don't want it going over the web in plain text. The process looks like this:
Browse to non-SSL port index.html
Redirect to SSL port index.html
Redirect to Auth directory auth.html
Auth directory is password protected (like what you suggested for the Music directory)
If User/Pass is valid redirect to Music directory on non-SSL port.
Currently I have the Music directory set up as Deny from all and I'm trying to use SetEnvIf Remote_User to allow access but it's not working.
