Lockdown is great but is only accessible via the RapidWeaver desktop app - I have to republish the Lockdown page from my Mac to add a user. Yes the on-rev 'Password Protected Directories' page is an alternative and not confined to a desktop app, but it still requires me. I was looking for a server-based environment to be able to spread the load a bit.
However, now you've got me thinking - maybe I can cobble together a little LiveCode app to manage the passwords file on the server…
I'd love to have a go at rolling my own but time is tight at the moment.
