Can anyone point me to a tutorial that explains in words of one syllable how
to protect files/directories without using .htaccess and .htpasswd.

I have log-in screens that search an authorized users database for name,
password, level before they can get into the site. But each time someone (ie
me at the moment) tries to log-in, the browser throws up the (HTTP
Authentication?) dialog box - I guess because I have .htaccess and .htpasswd
protecting the directories where the scripts reside. I would prefer not to
have this happen and rely only on authentication from the database. But how
do I then protect the directories/scripts from anyone wanting to have a look
(not that they're worth much!).
