    Web Hosting

    I intend to use an application on my PC called MiniPortal, which runs an Apache server. I want a Home Page that will display the folder contents of a hard drive but will only be accessible through login (password). Is that possible? Could you point me to some examples? Thanks in advance!

    According to this page about MiniPortal, the Remote File Access feature offers "Three levels of protection are used to secure files: access restricted to HTTP/FTP ports, access restricted to specified directories, username/password protection." As for how good it is, I guess you'll have to test it to find out...they also may have a FAQ or other documentation on this, as I imagine Apache security files seem pretty strange for most Windows users. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
