I'm now understanding how you can get PHP to present you with a username and password promt just like APache would do if you had a .htaccess file in the directory you were trying to enter. Great idea but it seems that it would be easier to just use the .htaccess file in the directory.
What I've been trying to find out is how to pass through a .htaccess file if someone has already passed an database authentication lookup in PHP. I have an area on my site "Special Publications" where users login and their username and password is checked against a MySQL database. One field in their user records is the URL to their directory on our server. Each one of these directories is protected via .htaccess. What I would really like to do is have them redirected to their URL if they pass authentication and not have them enter their username and password again. Is their a way to do this?
