Hey guys,

I'm in the real estate/construction industry and have a website that is coded in html, ssi, css, just basic coding knowledge. Anyway I want to create a home owner login and a subcontractor login, where I can assign each customer a login info and then they would login and have access to documents pertained to them. Is there a CGI Script I would need? My sites are hosted on 1&1.


THanks!

CGI shouldn't be used any more, I'd go with PHP instead. This book covers how to do this step by step if you want a detailed explanation:

Just FYI, these days that sort of things comes standard as a module with pretty much any CMS you use, like Joomla, Drupal, Wordpress etc. I haven't seen your site of course, but I'd almost guess it'd be faster to redo your site in the CMS and use the integrated user- and loginfeatures of those. I find it extremely time consuming to find quality scripts and solutions that do the trick in plain JS, made for plain HTML/CSS/JS sites.
