Multiple Uses Of Htaccess
Posted 09 November 2004 - 02:45 PM
For a smooth user experience, what I am hoping to achieve is a single page along the lines of "blah blah blah, for entry to the secure section, click here" then a link to a page within the main secure directory (with the authentication htaccess), which the users probably never actually see as they would be automagically transferred to the appropriate subdirectory.
I can play with our htaccess ok but the server doesn't allow any scripts or "anything dynamic".
Thanks in advance for any help...

If I'm understanding your question correctly, it'll be something that is going to be basically impossible with just htaccess. It just doesn't play very well with regular expressions and conditionals.
It can however be done if you toss a bit of scripting into the mix.
Your server doesn't support any server side scripting languages like PHP or ASP?

No, no scripting. We had a choice of Windows server with ASP, or Linux without.
If scripting is the only way, what would be the implications of changing (the ones that they're not telling me about)? Windows anything is generally more prone to all sorts of unexpected behaviours, in my experience so far...

I don't do Windows servers myself for various reasons. One of those being that 90% of the hack attempts on my *nix boxes are specifcally targetting known Windows securityy holes.
That said, as long as security is a top priority either is relatively safe. All you have to do is start off with a good plan and stay on top of any patch releases.

That said, I've never attempted any so do you have some pointers you could share?

I haven't looked, but I'm sure that HotScripts.com has at least a couple of freebie scripts that'll accomplish the task. Just search in their PHP area for "htgroup" and it should pull up some options for you.
