    Question Secure Clients Files

    Im not sure if this is the best place to ask as its not got much to do with graphic designing....

    Like most of you i have a lot of files for different clients scattered all over the place on several servers for them to download.

    Until recently I had a little mess up in files and a client downloaded the wrong clients work. luckily I started to password protect my rar files.

    my question is does anyone know of any free opensource scripts that is a file manager that has a username and password protect section for my clients files?

    Many thanks

    Could you not just put each client's files in an individual folder on your server and then password protect using a .htaccess file?

    Fair enough. A log-in script in PHP/MSQL actually isn't that hard. Are you running on Linux/Unix with PHP support?

    How about something like this; PHP Login script tutorial or PHP MySQL Login Script maybe? All I did was Google "php login tutorial" and there are loads. There are even some on YouTube but, based on the crap there is on there for web design, choose your vid carefully!

    All-in-all I find the .htaccess file permission thing more convenient. If you set-up such php scripts that requires special permissions and if you plan to change hosts, you might land-up in a mess as all those permissions would have to be set again manually, and believe thats a huge head-ache.
