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.

i'm looking for a webpage with a login/password box that allows you to log onto a ftp server without having to enter the password/username in clear text in the URL like 'ftp://firstname.lastname@example.org'. does anyone out there know of something like this?
i'm not looking for a web based ftp client, just a login page.
in the website listed below, there is two boxes, one for someone's username one for someone's password, when they enter in there usename/password and press the 'login' button i want to take the information out of the two boxes and place it in a url
ftp://(this is were the information from the username box goes):(this is were the information from the password box goes)@mydomain.com
so it makes a link, all the users has to do is enter there username and password info the box and press login.
all i need to do, is figure out how to output the contents of the two boxes into the URL.
even if someone knows how to output one text box into another text box, or something to push me in the right direction.
ok, I guess I misunderstood what you are trying to do. I don't write PHP, nor do I know anything about it. I'm sorry I can't be of more help, I thought it was a generic FTP question. You might also try asking one of the mods to move this thread to Programming, since that seems to be the type of question you are asking(if I understand correctly)
This is one way to do it with a CGI.
Put this shell script in your cgibin directory, call it ftp.cgi and turn on the r-x flags.
Browsing to it should display the form, pressing submit sends the form data to the same script processes the data and outputs a redirect header to your ftp site.
