    Hello, I need some help. Im a newbie to web design. I have built my own server and I am trying to create a very basic looking website for the first site that I build but I do not know what to call this style of site so finding info on creating one has been pretty annoying.
    I want a log in page which I am in the process of creating, and all I want the function of the site to do is display a directory index, and have files downloadable. Let me know if that is too vague. I can describe it in more detail if needed.

    It would involve using PHP scripting.
    How much do you know about PHP?

    A summary of the steps:
    1) Create an HTML login form that calls a PHP script.
    2) PHP login script checks password and begins a PHP SESSION.
    3) If SESSION is active, PHP reads the directory you specify.
    4) PHP displays the files and creates a link to each one.
    5) The display can be file name, file size, file revision date, and link to it.
    6) Different log-ins can yield different files, directories, or results.
