I'm not even sure why you're thinking of it as a password.

What you want is a download token that allows one file to download one time and then expires upon a successful download.

Not hard to do at all, just need a programmer ;)

Ok right a slight difference in the name given i am not a programmer else i quite probably would not have asked on this list :-) ..

This isn't something that you can do with static html. It would require some server side programming and possibly the use of a database. If you don't have the skills to do this yourself and don't have a programming team on tap you might be better off looking for an external service provider. I don't know what is available, I have thought about this on a couple of occasions but it hasn't been important enough to me to do the research.

Hi ..

Yes it is proving to be a bit of a pain i can do password but not use once then disabled not to worry i may well be passing the site off to someone else that Thinks he knows better ( i know different) but when he comes grovelling back i will have some serious fun at his expense ..

Thanks folks ..

Remove token from database once it has been used.

OTP (One Time Password) systems are commonly used to increase security of plain passwords. Maybe it's worth to look into a ready made system ?
