    Hello,

    I would like to direct a client to a directory dependent on the login.

    For example Dan logs in as a member of group admin requesting file index.html and is automatically presented with /var/www/html/admin/index.html. Subsequently he is only served files from /var/www/html/admin/ .

    If Joe logs in as a member of group user requesting file index.html he is automatically presented with /var/www/html/user/index.html. Subsequently he is only served files from /var/www/html/user/ .

    Does anyone know how that may be done?

    2nd. question, how can I get the username & group of the requestor of a page?

    Thanks in advance - Ken

    You could do this with PHP (or any other scripting language, e.g. Ruby or Perl).

    You can set a cookie, or, if the user has disabled cookies in his browser, use session ids.
