    PHP is more dynamic but also requires a datasource (MySQL is good) I would say for a small site .htaccess is fine but for bigger ones PHP or ASP is a must!

    if its a personal server and just you are going to be logging in to access the files or what ever, use .htaccess

    if its out there in userland, use a php/asp login system. you should be able to find what youre looking for on

    session_start(); // start the session
    $_SESSION['login'] = (!isset($_SESSION['login'])) ? false : $_SESSION['login'];
    // if the session doesnt exist set it to false else take the current value
    // check if logout was requested
    if (isset($_GET['logout']) 
    AND $_GET['logout'] == 1
    AND $_SESSION['login'] === true
    $_SESSION['login'] = false;
    header('location: '.htmlspecialchars($_SERVER['PHP_SELF'])); // redirect 
    // check if the form was submitted
    {// there is posted
    if ( isset($_POST['username']) AND !empty($_POST['username']) // was the username entered
    isset($_POST['password']) AND !empty($_POST['password']) // was password entered
    AND strtolower($_POST['username']) == USERNAME // do username match
    AND strtolower($_POST['password']) == PASSWORD // do pass match
    $_SESSION['login'] = true; // set session to true
    header('location: '.htmlspecialchars($_SERVER['PHP_SELF'])); // redirect to
    // same page wit session to true
    exit(); // so the code dont continue to execute below
    // wasnt correct send back
    header('location: '.htmlspecialchars($_SERVER['PHP_SELF']).'?error=1'); // redirect to
    } // end of post block
    if ($_SESSION['login'] === true)
    // protected area
    echo 'youre in the protected area!<br />';
    echo ',<a href="?logout=1">Logout</a> here';
    // the form ?
    if (isset($_GET['error']) AND $_GET['error'] == 1) // ups an error
    echo '<center>Wrong pass etc</center><br />';
    echo '<form action="'.htmlspecialchars($_SERVER['PHP_SELF']).'" method="post">';
