View Full Version : General Question about a Client Login

08-29-2011, 08:14 PM
Hi folks,

I am a total beginner when it comes to Apache and PHP coding, and I just had a general question about what I want to do and how best to go about doing it/where to learn about it:

I want to build a client login for a site that goes to a certain page based on what information/which user logins in (so user1 goes to page1, user2 goes to page2, etc.). Right now, I am using Plesk as my back-end to just password protect directories. I would assume it would need to go further than to accomplish this, but I am totally uncertain of how to do it. Any guidance on where to start would be greatly appreciated.

If you have more than a couple users you should look into writing it in a programming language like PHP with a database backend like MySQL. If you only have a few users and you are already handling auth with Apache it might make sense to use mod_rewrite to alter the request for the individual users.
