I have posted my question to this list before but I did not get a help that I was expected.

All I wanted to do is to give access for the users to view a page in which the below code is embedded. The user will enter his/her username and password.

But the code is not working.

I don't know what to think.

I need your help guys. Don't let me die on this code

 $auth = false;
 if (isset( $PHP_AUTH_USER )  && isset($PHP_AUTH_PW)) {

     $filename = 'c:\\php_data\\file.txt';
     $f = @fopen($filename, "r");
      if ($f != FALSE)
      {    $a = @fread($f, filesize($filename));
           echo "Could not open file";

     $lines = explode ( "\n", $file_contents );

     foreach ( $lines as $line ) {

         list( $username, $password ) = explode( ':', $line );

         if ( ( $username == "$PHP_AUTH_USER" ) &amp;&amp;
              ( $password == "$PHP_AUTH_PW" ) ) {

             $auth = true;



 if ( ! $auth ) {

     header( 'WWW-Authenticate: Basic realm="Private"' );
     header( 'HTTP/1.0 401 Unauthorized' );
     echo 'Authorization Required.';

 } else {

     echo '<P>You are authorized!</P>';
 > }
