Re: Apache with htpasswd without htaccess
Sorry my reply wasn't exact either.
I should read you email more closely - sorry.
Looks like you may need a web scripting language like php, coldfuison, perl
This way you can build a database and user GUI admin.
It's alot more involved than setting directives though.
Hope this helps
