    Hey guys,

    I am in desperate need of some advice! I have been given the wonderful duty of creating a website for my students NVQ Work. I am trying to base it on this page: http://learndirect.nvqportfolio.com. I also need to be able to create various logins with different types of security levels.

    I hope you can help!

    First - FF doesn't like the certificate used by that site! (And nor does IE I see)

    Second - it doesn't like the popup!

    It is perfectly possible to create pages asking for passwords - any decent book will show you how. And there are many ways to use those to limit access to what is behind.

    How you do this depends on the OS the server is running on, the HTTP server itself and what other tools you propose to use.

    Opera doesn't like that certificate either, got a message saying somebody might be trying to eavsdrop on you. This is because the certificate does not match the domain properly.

    As Harry said, whatever OS the web server is running on and whatever web site software is running server side will determine how you set up access to files and folders.

    The two most common are IIS running on Windows and Apache running on *nix

    If its Apache, you might have a cPanel configuration utility which makes this kind of thing very easy.

    I am definately not going to risk opening that link.

    If FF thinks its dodgy, the link looks dodgy.

    What are you playing at?

    Base it on something else. I'm having the same experience as the others (or is this some sort of gag).
