if you're asking what i think, then you're asking about using .htaccess
configuration files. there are several tutorials out there... somewhere.
:P using .htaccess makes the server send a username/password request to the
browser, where the user gets the familiar user/pass dialog. if the right
password is not entered, the user gets an authorization denied message.
this method locks all files in the directory and all its subdirectories.
what you referred to last looks like an authentication script that redirects
a usr to a specific page after providing the appropriate password(s).
