Hi There,
I'm just starting out, and don't know which direction to look at for this.

I'd like to set up a link to another page, but I'd like that page to be private, so that when a person clicks on that link, some type of login procedure will need to be followed to actually access the page that the person is trying to get to.

Can someone point me in the right direction to find out how to do something like that? I have no idea if that needs to be done with some sort of script, or something on the OS level or what. I am familiar with html, but I'm not an expert (yet). My site will be hosted on a Linux box, and will be hosted on a paid hosting site.

Thanks for any info.

first thing is, welcome to ozzu :D

second is, you're going to want to search ozzu for "login scripts" or something similar, as I am 99% sure this question gets asked a lot.

third is, our owner Bigwebmaster has a login script of his own, but I can't find the url at the moment. I know that search will have it though. ;)

good luck. :)

Well, what you need is a page with login. No matter the link that forwards the user to the page.

For making a page requiring login: you can configure the web server for doing so or using a scripting laguage like PHP, JSP, ASP, etc.
