Add password to link

Postby smakb » 21. June 2007 00:35

I need to add a small amount of security to an XAMPP website in that I would like people to only get to it via a specified link. is there a way to use basic authentication and then put the username and pasword into a link, like you can for an FTP site?

Thanks

Steve

No. (--> not with current browsers)

any ideas on an way to only allow access from a specific link? For my FTP server we use a link like ftp://ftpusername:password@www/ and that logs them in automaticly when accessing via that link.

I would like to do the same for one of my XAMPP web sites
