Hi,

I have a directory and have password protected that area for members that can sign in. I am using a regular .htpasswds file to protect the directory. Is there anyway to have a script email me the user name and password that was entered to get access to the website? That way you would be able to see the user name of the people logging in.

Any replies would be much appreciated!

Hi
I think the simplest way to see people (usernames) logging in when they use passwords from .htpasswds is to look at your raw log.

example:
IPorHOSTNAME - USERNAME [DATE] etc...

Second thing - I think using email to sending passwords every time the protected directory is accesed isn't secure.

If the passwords are neccesesary - maybe better idea is to use PHP/JavaScript or so. And you can be able to see all combinations of username/password and other details online on your site (for example using small MySQL database).
I hope it helps.
