Password Protected / Secure Site
« on: July 28, 2009, 09:24:02 PM »
I've got a new site that needs a fairly secure "Members Only" section.

Probably I want members to use a password that changes every month. It doesn't need to be secure enough to protect money or credit card information, but just to keep non-members out. We don't want people to be able to get into the "back door" by doing a Google search, etc.

What do I do to get what I need?

Do you want to assign passwords yourself?  Then using HTACCESS on a Linux/Unix server will work just fine.

If you want your members to sign up and have immediate access after a confirmation email is out, and modify email/password ongoing, then you will need a membership script.  AMEMBER is one of the best options here.

Take a look at this thread for some info and other companies that offer what you want.
