    FTP Question

    I want to create a login page for users and heard from a friend that you can download a FTP program that will allow you to create user logins to access certain areas. Is this true? If so, anyone know of a good program to use?

    Thanks,

    Can't help with any specific recommendations, but you should be able to find what you're looking for here: http://www.hotscripts.com/PHP/Scripts_and_Programs/

    If you want a user login on your webpage, that really doesn't have anything to do with FTP.

    To do what you want, you'll have to use a server side language (PHP, ASP, JSP, etc). You'll either have to write your own or you might be able to find one on the site that PappaJohn provided a link to. As for more specific recommendations, it depends what languages your host supports.

    I agree with Oracleguy ...

    Use PHP to allow them to login (using Sessions) and only
    display webpage(s) if they are logged in.

    PM me for an example, since this part of the forum is "General" not PHP.

    If you can make the extensions of your webpages .php, I can get you started.
