First of all, is there a group addressing "Authentication" issues? I've
searched and could not find any - Plz. forgive if I have posted to the
wrong group or direct me to one dealing with these issues
I am putting together a multi-page sites, MySQL & PostgreSQL pages
included. I'd like to make all pages publicly visible, however on pages
containing defined features such as forms, certain scripts, SSI's etc
the running of these should be restricted to authenticated registered
users. Could someone advise how this can best be achieved. The use of
.htaccess type approaches don't quite do it as they restrict access to
whole directories and below, effectively denying access of the public to
whole sections of the site.
them have been a bit unsure.
Plz. advise and comment
The closest fit for server-side programming questions is
comp.infosystems.www.authoring.cgi, but it's understandable that that
wouldn't be obvious.
Put text near the forms to let users know they are for registered users
only, then make the ACTION of each form point to a script under, e.g.,
/registered that is restricted by .htaccess.
effectively. If you can make things work with .htaccess, do so.

something with a more "persistent of state" attribute.
