Can PHP Automatic Log Me In To Another Site On The Same Server?

I want to use session variables to log in to another script

I have a website with a folder protected by Apache Basic Authentication.

On the same server/IP, I have another protected folder which is protected by a Perl script and uses a normal web form with text boxes anmed "login" and "passwd."

Can someone assist me in developing a short PHP snippet that will allow me to click on a link in my first folder and use the PHP_AUTH_USER and the PHP_AUTH_PWD session variables to log in to the second folder with the Perl script?

Any help would be appreciated.

have you got any code so far?

if you control the other script you could also write in a bypass for this

Thanks Jatar,

Yes, I was able to find a guy to code the action for me.

I do not have code access to the second script, but he was able to fill and submit (execute) the form.

Sorry, I forgot my post here when there were no responses.
