    I am working on a website that will have a members section, and need to find out how to make it so a user will have to log in with a preset name and password in order to view the page.

    Any way to go about this? I searched around on google, but I am not versed in java, asp, apache, or anything like that (what I generally saw to set the stuff up) :x:

    What webserver?
    What OS?
    Do you have shell access or something like CPanel or Plesk?

    .htaccess (assuming the server is running Apache). You can set it up through CPanel I believe.
