Dear TheDoc, I do not find any fault for you asking if the environment can handle PHP. It definitely was the question to ask. Thank you for trying to help me. You are greatly appreciated.
Dear robSkiwarrior, Thank you Thank you thank you! You explained exactly the underlying idea I was missing. I did as you suggested and got the table you said I would. I was able to find the path info and have gotten the password protection to work. Did I say thank you? Thank you! You are definitely the skiwarrior of my heart.
I am in your debt,
