    index.php
    Code:
    <?php 
    $path = "/home/bah/www/users"; 
     
    if($user != "") { 
      mt_srand((double)microtime()*1000000);  
      $chars = array_merge(range('a','z'),range('A','Z'),range(0,9));  
      for($i=0;$i<2;$i++) {  
        $salt .= $chars[mt_rand(0,count($chars)-1)]; 
      } 
      $pass = crypt($pass, $salt); 
     
      if (!$fd = fopen($path . "/" . $user . "/.htaccess", "w")) { 
        print "Cannot open .htaccess file"; 
        exit; 
      } 
     
      if (!fwrite($fd, "AuthName \"Protected Area\"\n 
                   AuthUserFile ". $path . "/" . $user . "/.htpasswd\n 
                   AuthType Basic\n\n 
     
                   <Limit GET>\n 
                   require valid-user\n 
                   </Limit>")) { 
        print "Cannot write to .htaccess file"; 
        exit; 
      } 
      fclose($fd); 
     
     
      if (!$fd = fopen($path . "/" . $user . "/.htpasswd", "w")) { 
        print "Cannot open .htpasswd file"; 
        exit; 
      } 
     
      if (!fwrite($fd, $user.":".$pass)) { 
        print "Cannot write to .htpasswd file"; 
        exit; 
      } 
      fclose($fd); 
     
      echo "User added.<BR><BR>"; 
    } else { 
    ?>

    Not sure if this is what you're looking for but might set you into the right direction, this was for what you're trying to do.

    Perhaps a more simple solution :

    PHP Code:
    <?php
        
    if ($_SERVER['REQUEST_METHOD'] == "POST")
        {
              
    $username $_POST['username'];
              
    $password $_POST['password'];
        } else {
              exit(
    "Sorry, you must login first");
        }
        
    //Add your username checking code
        //here. This is just an example

        
    if(!mysql_connect("localhost","user","pass")) { die(mysql_error()); }
        if (!
    mysql_select_db("user_database")) { die(mysql_error()); }
        
        
    $query "SELECT * FROM users WHERE username = '".$username."' AND pass = '".md5($password)."'";
        if (!
    $res mysql_query($query)) { die($query."<br />".mysql_error()); }
        if (
    mysql_num_rows($res) == 0)
        {
             echo 
    "Sorry, your credentials aren't valid";
         } else {
            
    header("Location: http://host.sld.tld/users/".$username.".html");
            exit();
         }
    ?>
    Of course, you'd replace the validation code with something that works for your situation. You would call this script from your login form, something like this:
    Code:
    <form method="post" action="nameoffile.php">
    <input type="text" name="username" />
    <input type="password" name="password" />
    <input type="submit" name="submit" value="Login" />
    </form>
