server security system: Login into site


Could someone please tell me the best way to implement a login page to my web site. i have a web site in Apache, running on a Red Hat Linux system. i would like to implement somekind of login.

when the user enters the address, a dialog for user and password to come up.

Thanks in advance

Anyone know if .htaccess and .htpasswd files are the way to go?

In case you can run a jsp container like Tomcat with your Apache, I would suggest you try -
It gives a form based interface. This is more user friendly as compared to the pop-up dialog the users get if you implement .htaccess method

Easiest way will indeed be .htaccess file in your web-root....
