Additional .htaccess authentication
I'm using a free script from the perl archive that sets up the .htaccess and .htpasswd files on my server. It also allows me to add new users, delete existing users, and change passwords. This is ideal as it means that my directory is new secure with little, in fact no scripting on my part.
However, now when people try to access the directory they get the standard login prompt which is very unsightly. Is there a way for me to create my own html login page that calls a script to authorize a user based on the details in the .htpasswd file?
I'm sure this is possible as the original script allows me change passwords so it must be interacting with the .htpasswd somehow.
Any help would be much appreciated.
