    passwords

    ok so obviously passwords are encrypted but ow and where are they stored, if I sign up to facebook does the server create a table with my username and password or is it stored elsewhere?

    There's no single answer to this question, although generally they're encrypted with a salt and stored in a database table somewhere.

    ahh yes completely forgot about that, the reason I asked is because I'm reading a book tat mentioned pw protecting directories on the server and I got confused, pw protecting a folder is done to set permissions for employees of the company basically, right? so only a specific developer can edit or change the stuff within

    That's usually done with web.config or .htaccess, although I personally prefer the programmatic approach as I can be more granular with it. Visit a folder, if you don't have access rights to the folder, log in, and then from there figure out which pages you're supposed to have access rights to.
